powerpc: Do not assert pte_locked for hugepage PTE entries

With CONFIG_DEBUG_VM, an assertion is made when changing the protection
flags of a PTE that the PTE is locked. Huge pages use a different pagetable
format and the assertion is bogus and will always trigger with a bug looking
something like

This patch fixes the problem by not asseting the PTE is locked for VMAs
backed by huge pages.
