Allow hmm_range_fault() to return success (0) when the range has no access
(!(vma->vm_flags & VM_READ)). The range->pfns[] array will be filled with
range->values[HMM_PFN_NONE] in this case.
This allows the caller to get a snapshot of a range without having to
lookup the vma before calling hmm_range_fault().
If the call to hmm_range_fault() is not a snapshot, the caller can still
check that pfns have the desired access permissions.
