x86/mm: fix mod_l1_entry() return value when encountering r/o MMIO page

While putting together the workaround announced in
http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-06/msg00709.html, I
found that mod_l1_entry(), upon encountering a set bit in
mmio_ro_ranges, would return 1 instead of 0 (the removal of the write
permission is supposed to be entirely transparent to the caller, even
more so to the calling guest).
