It's not pretty, but I don't see much options.

I first tried to modify routines that initialize/modify/remove parts of
direct mapping to keep all per-KeyID direct mappings in sync from start.
But it didn't really fly. We need to initialize direct mapping very early
when we don't have a way to allocated page in a usual way. We have very
limited pool of pre-allocated pages to allocate page tables from and it's
not able to satisfy demand for multiple direct mappings.

So I had to go with syncing it later on. When we have working page

Regarding open-codeness, we need to walk two subtrees in lock steps.
I don't see how get mm/pagewalk.c to work in such use case. (And I don't
really like callback-based pagewalker.)
