On arm64 without hardware Access Flag, copying from user will fail because
the pte is old and cannot be marked young. So we always end up with zeroed
page after fork() + CoW for pfn mappings. We don't always have a
hardware-managed Access Flag on arm64.

Hence implement arch_faults_on_old_pte on arm64 to indicate that it might
cause page fault when accessing old pte.
