I just readed your code changes to TTL. You pass the TTL value by changing the
function interface, which only involves the ARM and ARM64 architectures in Stage-2

However, in Stage-1, many common interfaces(such as flush_tlb_range) need to be
modified, which involves very much architectures. So I try to use MM context in
mm_struct to pass the TTL value.

I will send patch v2 based on top of your kvm-arm64/nv-5.6-rc1 branch soon.
