ARM: 6255/1: Workaround infinity loop in handling of translation faults



On ARM one Linux PGD entry contains two hardware entries (see page
tables layout in pgtable.h). We normally guarantee that we always
fill both L1 entries. But create_mapping() doesn't follow the rule.
It can create inidividual L1 entries, so here we have to call
pmd_none() check in do_translation_fault() for the entry really
corresponded to address, not for the first of pair.
