xenpaging: when populating a page, check if populating is already in progress

p2m_mem_paging_populate can be called serveral times from different
vcpus. If the page is already in state p2m_ram_paging_in and has a new
valid mfn, invalidating this new mfn will cause trouble later if
p2m_mem_paging_resume will set the new gfn/mfn pair back to state
p2m_ram_rw.  Detect this situation and keep p2m state if the page is
in the process of being still paged-out or already paged-in.  In fact,
p2m state p2m_ram_paged is the only state where the mfn type can be
