i386: use pte_update_defer in ptep_test_and_clear_{dirty,young}

If you actually clear the bit, you need to:

+         pte_update_defer(vma->vm_mm, addr, ptep);

The reason is, when updating PTEs, the hypervisor must be notified.  Using
atomic operations to do this is fine for all hypervisors I am aware of.
However, for hypervisors which shadow page tables, if these PTE
modifications are not trapped, you need a post-modification call to fulfill
the update of the shadow page table.
