When we tested pmdk unit test [1] vmmalloc_fork TEST3 on arm64 guest, there
will be a double page fault in __copy_from_user_inatomic of cow_user_page.

To reproduce the bug, the cmd is as follows after you deployed everything:
make -C src/test/vmmalloc_fork/ TEST_TIME=60m check

Below call trace is from arm64 do_page_fault for debugging purpose:

[  110.024535]  do_mem_abort+0x50/0xb0
[  110.025423]  el0_da+0x20/0x24

The pte info before __copy_from_user_inatomic is (PTE_AF is cleared):
[ffff9b007000] pgd=000000023d4f8003, pud=000000023da9b003,
               pmd=000000023d4b3003, pte=360000298607bd3

As told by Catalin: "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."

This patch fixes it by calling pte_mkyoung. Also, the parameter is
changed because vmf should be passed to cow_user_page()

Add a WARN_ON_ONCE when __copy_from_user_inatomic() returns error
in case there can be some obscure use-case (by Kirill).
