For PTE-mapped THP, the compound THP has not been split to normal 4K
pages yet, the whole THP is considered referenced if any one of sub
page is referenced.

When walking PTE-mapped THP by pvmw, all relevant PTEs will be checked
to retrieve referenced bit. But, the current code just returns the
result of the last PTE. If the last PTE has not referenced, the
referenced flag will be cleared.

Just did logical OR for referenced to get the correct result.

v2: adopted the suggestion from Kirill. Not use "||=" style to keep checkpatch
quiet, otherwise it reports ERROR: spaces required around that '||'
