[PATCH v2 1/4] kasan: introduce set_pmd_early_shadow()
It is incorrect to call pmd_populate_kernel() multiple times for the
same page table from inside Xen PV domains. Xen notices it during
kasan_populate_early_shadow():

(XEN) mm.c:3222:d155v0 mfn 3704b already pinned

This happens for kasan_early_shadow_pte when USE_SPLIT_PTE_PTLOCKS is
enabled. Fix this by introducing set_pmd_early_shadow() which calls
pmd_populate_kernel() only once and uses set_pmd() afterwards.
