From: Matthew Wilcox <mawilcox@microsoft.com>

Define a new PageTable bit in the page_type and use it to mark pages in
use as page tables.  This can be helpful when debugging crashdumps or
analysing memory fragmentation.  Add a KPF flag to report these pages
to userspace and update page-types.c to interpret that flag.

Note that only pages currently accounted as NR_PAGETABLES are tracked
as PageTable; this does not include pgd/p4d/pud/pmd pages.  Those will
be the subject of a later patch.
