[PATCH v2] Install kernel-page-flags.h

Programs using /proc/kpageflags need to know about the various flags. The
<linux/kernel-page-flags.h> provides them and the comments in the file
indicate that it is supposed to be used by user-level code. But the file
is not installed.

The patch below installs the headers and marks the unstable flags as
out-of-bounds. The page-type tool is also adjusted to not duplicate the
definitions
