Originally, we want to have an opportunity to restore the previous attribute of pages, that
should be more better if the pages are remembered in 'image->control_pages'.
If we remove these codes, it is also harmless for kdump, but it will become strange, maybe
someone could ask where to restore the previous attribute of pages.

Thanks.
