Just as an observation, but given that they're invalid we can use any bit
from [63:2] to indicate that it's a PROT_NONE mapping, and that way we
can keep the real "software bits" for live mappings.

But we can of course change that later when we need the bit for something
else.

Why do we need an extra entry here? Couldn't we just create PROT_NONE
entries when none of R,W or X are set?

I think it would be a good idea to check !kvm_pte_valid() in here too,
since it doesn't make sense to report true for valid (or table) entries.
