OK. Will set the pointer late and reset it early like this. Since
there are several error conditions after kvm_create_vm(), it may be
more convenient to set it in kvm_dev_ioctl_create_vm(), when there are
no more errors to handle:

It's the initial RFC post. [PATCH 0] describes some background info.

Basically we're implementing /proc/PID/idle_bitmap for user space to
walk page tables and get "accessed" bits. Since VM's "accessed" bits
will be reflected in EPT (or AMD NPT), we'll need to walk EPT when
detected it is QEMU main process.

Thanks,
Fengguang
