Oh come on guys, nobody protested when I called it this way :-)

Peronally, I don't quite like 'shadow_tdp_mmu' because it doesn't have
any particular reference to the fact that it is a nested/L2 related
thing (maybe it's just a shadow MMU?) Also, we already have a thing
called 'nested_mmu'... Maybe let's be bold and rename all three things,

root_mmu -> l1_mmu
guest_mmu -> l1_nested_mmu
nested_mmu -> l2_mmu (l2_walk_mmu)

or something like that?
