MIPS: Fix page table corruption on THP permission changes.

When the core THP code is modifying the permissions of a huge page it
calls pmd_modify(), which unfortunately was clearing the _PAGE_HUGE bit
of the page table entry.  The result can be kernel messages like:

mm/memory.c:397: bad pmd 000000040080004d.
mm/memory.c:397: bad pmd 00000003ff00004d.
mm/memory.c:397: bad pmd 000000040100004d.
