[PATCH] paravirt: combine flush accessed dirty.patch



Remove ptep_test_and_clear_{dirty|young} from i386, and instead use the
dominating functions, ptep_clear_flush_{dirty|young}.  This allows the TLB
page flush to be contained in the same macro, and allows for an eager
optimization - if reading the PTE initially returned dirty/accessed, we can
assume the fact that no subsequent update to the PTE which cleared accessed /
dirty has occurred, as the only way A/D bits can change without holding the
page table lock is if a remote processor clears them.  This eliminates an
extra branch which came from the generic version of the code, as we know that
no other CPU could have cleared the A/D bit, so the flush will always be
needed.

We still export these two defines, even though we do not actually define
the macros in the i386 code:

 #define __HAVE_ARCH_PTEP_TEST_AND_CLEAR_YOUNG
 #define __HAVE_ARCH_PTEP_TEST_AND_CLEAR_DIRTY

The reason for this is that the only use of these functions is within the
generic clear_flush functions, and we want a strong guarantee that there
are no other users of these functions, so we want to prevent the generic
code from defining them for us.
