Subject[PATCH 00/16] KVM: x86: MMU page fault clean-up
The original purpose of this series was to call thp_adjust() from
__direct_map() and FNAME(fetch) to eliminate a page refcounting quirk[*].
Before doing that, I wanted to clean up the large page handling so that
the map/fetch funtions weren't being passed multiple booleans that tracked
the same basic info. While trying to decipher all the the interactions,
I stumbled across a handful of fun things:

- 32-bit KVM w/ TDP is completely broken with respect to 64-bit GPAs due
to the page fault handlers and all related flows dropping bits 63:32
of the GPA. As a result, KVM inserts the wrong GPA and the guest hangs
because it generates EPT/NPT faults until it's killed.

- The TDP and non-paging page fault flows are identical except for
one-off constraints on guest page size.

- The !VALID_PAGE(root_hpa) checks in the page fault flows are bogus.
They were added a few years ago to "fix" a nVMX bug and are no longer
needed now that nVMX is in much better shape.

Patch 1 fixes the 32-bit KVM w/ TDP issue. More details below.

Patches 2-12 are 99% refactoring to merge TDP and non-paging page fault
handling, and to do the thp_adjust() move. These are basically nops from
a functional perspective. There are technically functional changes in a
few patches, but they are very superficial and in theory won't be
observable in normal usage.

Patches 13-16 add WARNs on the !VALID_PAGE(root_hpa) checks to make it
clear that root_hpa is expected to be valid when handling page faults,
e.g. for the longest time I thought KVM relied on the checks in map/fetch
to correctly handle kvm_mmu_zap_all().

32-bit KVM w/ TDP:

I marked this patch for stable because it's obviously a bug fix, but I'm
entirely not sure we want to backport the fix. Obviously no userspace VMM
is actually exposing 64-bit GPAs to its guests, i.e. odds are this won't
actually fix any real world use cases. And, the scope of the changes are
likely going to make backporting a pain. But, on the other hand, if it's
not backported then future bug fixes in related code are likely to
conflict, and it does fix the case where a buggy guest kernel accesses a
non-existent 64-bit GPA (crashes instead of hanging indefinitely).

I'm also not confident I found all the cases where KVM is truncating the
GPA. AFAIK, 32-bit Qemu simply doesn't support 64-bit GPAs. To confirm
the bug and verify the fix, I hacked KVM and the guest kernel to generate
64-bit GPAs when remapping MMIO, which covers a tiny fragment of KVM.
