The reference (R) and change (C) bits in a HPT entry can be set by
hardware at any time up until the HPTE is invalidated and the TLB
invalidation sequence has completed.  This means that when removing
a HPTE, we need to read the HPTE after the invalidation sequence has
completed in order to obtain reliable values of R and C.  The code
in kvmppc_do_h_remove() used to do this.  However, commit 6f22bd3265fb
("KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Make HTAB code LE host aware") removed the
read after invalidation as a side effect of other changes.  This
restores the read of the HPTE after invalidation.

The user-visible effect of this bug would be that when migrating a
guest, there is a small probability that a page modified by the guest
and then unmapped by the guest might not get re-transmitted and thus
the destination might end up with a stale copy of the page.
