mm: x86: move _PAGE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY from bit 7 to bit 1
_PAGE_PSE is used to distinguish between a truly non-present (_PAGE_PRESENT=0) PMD, and a PMD which is undergoing a THP split and should be treated as present. But _PAGE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY currently uses the _PAGE_PSE bit, which would cause confusion between one of those PMDs undergoing a THP split, and a soft-dirty PMD. Dropping _PAGE_PSE check in pmd_present() does not work well, because it can hurt optimization of tlb handling in thp split. Thus, we need to move the bit. In the current kernel, bits 1-4 are not used in non-present format since commit 00839ee3b299 ("x86/mm: Move swap offset/type up in PTE to work around erratum"). So let's move _PAGE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY to bit 1. Bit 7 is used as reserved (always clear), so please don't use it for other purpose.
