Set _PAGE_IOMAP in ptes mapping a VM_IO vma.  This says that the mapping
is of a real piece of physical hardware, and not just system memory.

Xen, in particular, uses to this to inhibit the normal pfn->mfn conversion
that would normally happen - in other words, treat the address directly
as a machine physical address without converting it from pseudo-physical.

[ Impact: make VM_IO mappings map the right thing under Xen ]
