This fixes a bug in the tracking of pages that get modified by the
guest.  If the guest creates a large-page HPTE, writes to memory
somewhere within the large page, and then removes the HPTE, we only
record the modified state for the first normal page within the large
page, when in fact the guest might have modified some other normal
page within the large page.

To fix this we use some unused bits in the rmap entry to record the
order (log base 2) of the size of the page that was modified, when
removing an HPTE.  Then in kvm_test_clear_dirty_npages() we use that
order to return the correct number of modified pages.

The same thing could in principle happen when removing a HPTE at the
host's request, i.e. when paging out a page, except that we never
page out large pages, and the guest can only create large-page HPTEs
if the guest RAM is backed by large pages.  However, we also fix
this case for the sake of future-proofing.

The reference bit is also subject to the same loss of information.  We
don't make the same fix here for the reference bit because there isn't
an interface for userspace to find out which pages the guest has
referenced, whereas there is one for userspace to find out which pages
the guest has modified.  Because of this loss of information, the
kvm_age_hva_hv() and kvm_test_age_hva_hv() functions might incorrectly
say that a page has not been referenced when it has, but that doesn't
matter greatly because we never page or swap out large pages.
