Use a basic NOT+AND sequence to clear the Accessed bit in TDP MMU SPTEs,
as opposed to the fancy ffs()+clear_bit() logic that was copied from the
legacy MMU.  The legacy MMU uses clear_bit() because it is operating on
the SPTE itself, i.e. clearing needs to be atomic.  The TDP MMU operates
on a local variable that it later writes to the SPTE, and so doesn't need
to be atomic or even resident in memory.

Opportunistically drop unnecessary initialization of new_spte, it's
guaranteed to be written before being accessed.

Using NOT+AND instead of ffs()+clear_bit() reduces the sequence from:

   0x0000000000058be6 <+134>:	test   %rax,%rax
   0x0000000000058be9 <+137>:	je     0x58bf4 <age_gfn_range+148>
   0x0000000000058beb <+139>:	test   %rax,%rdi
   0x0000000000058bee <+142>:	je     0x58cdc <age_gfn_range+380>
   0x0000000000058bf4 <+148>:	mov    %rdi,0x8(%rsp)
   0x0000000000058bf9 <+153>:	mov    $0xffffffff,%edx
   0x0000000000058bfe <+158>:	bsf    %eax,%edx
   0x0000000000058c01 <+161>:	movslq %edx,%rdx
   0x0000000000058c04 <+164>:	lock btr %rdx,0x8(%rsp)
   0x0000000000058c0b <+171>:	mov    0x8(%rsp),%r15

to:

   0x0000000000058bdd <+125>:	test   %rax,%rax
   0x0000000000058be0 <+128>:	je     0x58beb <age_gfn_range+139>
   0x0000000000058be2 <+130>:	test   %rax,%r8
   0x0000000000058be5 <+133>:	je     0x58cc0 <age_gfn_range+352>
   0x0000000000058beb <+139>:	not    %rax
   0x0000000000058bee <+142>:	and    %r8,%rax
   0x0000000000058bf1 <+145>:	mov    %rax,%r15

thus eliminating several memory accesses, including a locked access.
