x86/mm/init: Remove freed kernel image areas from alias mapping

commit c40a56a7 upstream.

The kernel image is mapped into two places in the virtual address space
(addresses without KASLR, of course):

	1. The kernel direct map (0xffff880000000000)
	2. The "high kernel map" (0xffffffff81000000)

We actually execute out of #2.  If we get the address of a kernel symbol,
it points to #2, but almost all physical-to-virtual translations point to

Parts of the "high kernel map" alias are mapped in the userspace page
tables with the Global bit for performance reasons.  The parts that we map
to userspace do not (er, should not) have secrets. When PTI is enabled then
the global bit is usually not set in the high mapping and just used to
compensate for poor performance on systems which lack PCID.

This is fine, except that some areas in the kernel image that are adjacent
to the non-secret-containing areas are unused holes.  We free these holes
back into the normal page allocator and reuse them as normal kernel memory.
The memory will, of course, get *used* via the normal map, but the alias
mapping is kept.

This otherwise unused alias mapping of the holes will, by default keep the
Global bit, be mapped out to userspace, and be vulnerable to Meltdown.

Remove the alias mapping of these pages entirely.  This is likely to
fracture the 2M page mapping the kernel image near these areas, but this
should affect a minority of the area.

The pageattr code changes *all* aliases mapping the physical pages that it
operates on (by default).  We only want to modify a single alias, so we
need to tweak its behavior.

This unmapping behavior is currently dependent on PTI being in place.
Going forward, we should at least consider doing this for all
configurations.  Having an extra read-write alias for memory is not exactly
ideal for debugging things like random memory corruption and this does
undercut features like DEBUG_PAGEALLOC or future work like eXclusive Page
Frame Ownership (XPFO).
