x86/mm/mtrr: Fix MTRR lookup to handle an inclusive entry

When an MTRR entry is inclusive to a requested range, i.e. the
start and end of the request are not within the MTRR entry range
but the range contains the MTRR entry entirely:

  range_start ... [mtrr_start ... mtrr_end] ... range_end

__mtrr_type_lookup() ignores such a case because both
start_state and end_state are set to zero.

This bug can cause the following issues:

1) reserve_memtype() tracks an effective memory type in case
   a request type is WB (ex. /dev/mem blindly uses WB). Missing
   to track with its effective type causes a subsequent request
   to map the same range with the effective type to fail.

2) pud_set_huge() and pmd_set_huge() check if a requested range
   has any overlap with MTRRs. Missing to detect an overlap may
   cause a performance penalty or undefined behavior.

This patch fixes the bug by adding a new flag, 'inclusive',
to detect the inclusive case.  This case is then handled in
the same way as end_state:1 since the first region is the same.
With this fix, __mtrr_type_lookup() handles the inclusive case
properly.
