[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 152/671] drm/xen-front: Fix mmap attributes for display buffers
From: Oleksandr Andrushchenko <oleksandr_andrushchenko@epam.com>

[ Upstream commit 24ded292a5c2ed476f01c77fee65f8320552cd27 ]

When GEM backing storage is allocated those are normal pages,
so there is no point using pgprot_writecombine while mmaping.
This fixes mismatch of buffer pages' memory attributes between
the frontend and backend which may cause screen artifacts.

Fixes: c575b7eeb89f ("drm/xen-front: Add support for Xen PV display frontend")
