Subject: [RFC v2][PATCH 04/11] x86: Implement __arch_rare_write_begin/unmap()

Based on PaX's x86 pax_{open,close}_kernel() implementation, this
allows HAVE_ARCH_RARE_WRITE to work on x86.

There is missing work to sort out some header file issues where preempt.h
is missing, though it can't be included in pg_table.h unconditionally...
some other solution will be needed, perhaps an entirely separate header
file for rare_write()-related defines...

This patch is also missing paravirt support.
