x86: change_page_attr bandaids
- Disable CLFLUSH again; it is still broken. Always do WBINVD. - Always flush in the i386 case, not only when there are deferred pages. These are both brute-force inefficient fixes, to be improved next release cycle. The changes to i386 are a little more extensive than strictly needed (some dead code added), but it is more similar to the x86-64 version now and the dead code will be used soon.
