This patch enable the speculative page fault on the PowerPC
architecture.

This will try a speculative page fault without holding the mmap_sem,
if it returns with VM_FAULT_RETRY, the mmap_sem is acquired and the
traditional page fault processing is done.

Support is only provide for BOOK3S_64 currently because:
- require CONFIG_PPC_STD_MMU because checks done in
  set_access_flags_filter()
- require BOOK3S because we can't support for book3e_hugetlb_preload()
  called by update_mmu_cache()
