Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] Move {tramp_pg_dir,swapper_pg_dir} to .rodata

Version 2 changes:

	As James Morse suggested[1], we introduce init_pg_dir, which
	is a reserved area of __initdata section. We setup initial
	page tables in it and then we setup final page tables in
	swapper_pg_dir directly. In this way, we can avoid using
	temporary top level.

	To defend 'KSMA', we need to handle page table configurations
	which we can write a block-mapping into swapper_pg_dir. These
	configurations are:

	CONFIG_ARM64_VA_BITS_39(4KB granule, 1GB block)
	CONFIG_ARM64_VA_BITS_36(16KB granule, 32MB block)
	CONFIG_ARM64_VA_BITS_42(64KB granule, 512MB block)

	If these configurations are selected, we move {tramp_pg_dir,
	swapper_pg_dir} to .rodata section. And we update
	swapper_pg_dir by fixmap.
