The x86 family of processors do not directly create read-only and Dirty
PTEs.  These PTEs are created by software.  One such case is that kernel
read-only pages are historically setup as Dirty.

New processors that support Shadow Stack regard read-only and Dirty PTEs as
shadow stack pages.  This results in ambiguity between shadow stack and
kernel read-only pages.  To resolve this, removed Dirty from kernel read-
only pages.
