This patch enables the speculative page fault on the arm64
architecture.

I completed spf porting in 4.9. From the test result,
we can see app launching time improved by about 10% in average.
For the apps which have more than 50 threads, 15% or even more
improvement can be got.

v2:
  move find_vma() to do_page_fault()
  remove IS_ENABLED()
  remove fault != VM_FAULT_SIGSEGV check
  initilize vma = NULL
