From: Toshi Kani <toshi.kani@hp.com>

As set_memory_wb() calls free_ram_pages_type(), which then calls
set_page_memtype() with -1, _PGMT_DEFAULT is used for tracking
the WB type.  _PGMT_WB is defined but unused.  Hence, this patch
renames _PGMT_DEFAULT to _PGMT_WB to clarify the usage, and
releases the slot used by _PGMT_WB before.  free_ram_pages_type()
is changed to call set_page_memtype() with _PGMT_WB, and
get_page_memtype() returns _PAGE_CACHE_MODE_WB for _PGMT_WB.

This patch then defines _PGMT_WT to the released slot.  This enables
set_page_memtype() to track the WT type.
