I don't think I'm understanding what your suggestion was.  I looked at
the code and I honestly do not think I can remove any of it.

For the plain (non-explicit pkey_mprotect()) case, there are exactly
four paths through __arch_override_mprotect_pkey(), resulting in three
different results.

1. New prot==PROT_EXEC, no pkey-exec support -> do not override
2. New prot!=PROT_EXEC, old VMA not PROT_EXEC-> do not override
3. New prot==PROT_EXEC, w/ pkey-exec support -> override to exec pkey
4. New prot!=PROT_EXEC, old VMA is PROT_EXEC -> override to default

I don't see any redundancy there, or any code that we can eliminate or
simplify.  It was simpler before, but that's what where bug was.
