[PATCH v2 2/3] KVM: arm64: Fix handling of merging tables into a block entry

In dirty logging case(logging_active == True), we need to collapse a
block entry into a table if necessary. After dirty logging is canceled,
when merging tables back into a block entry, we should not only free
the non-huge page-table pages but also invalidate all the TLB entries of
non-huge mappings for the block. Without enough TLBI, multiple TLB entries
for the memory in the block will be cached.
