From: George Dunlap <george.dunlap@citrix.com>

At the moment, the pfec argument to gva_to_gfn has two functions:

* To inform guest_walk what kind of access is happenind

* As a value to pass back into the guest in the event of a fault.

Unfortunately this is not quite treated consistently: the hvm_fetch_*
function will "pre-clear" the PFEC_insn_fetch flag before calling
gva_to_gfn; meaning guest_walk doesn't actually know whether a given
access is an instruction fetch or not.  This works now, but will cause
issues when pkeys are introduced, since guest_walk will need to know
whether an access is an instruction fetch even if it doesn't return
PFEC_insn_fetch.

Fix this by making a clean separation for in and out functionalities
of the pfec argument:

1. Always pass in the access type to gva_to_gfn

2. Filter out inappropriate access flags before returning from gva_to_gfn.

(The PFEC_insn_fetch flag should only be passed to the guest if either NX or
SMEP is enabled.  See Intel 64 Developer's Manual, Volume 3, Chapter Paging,
PAGE-FAULT EXCEPTIONS)
