While working on v3 of this series it occurred to me that we can
actually do vastly better than this. Specifically, the annotation of
shared pages currently happens in two places (recreate_hyp_mappings()
and finalize_mappings()) with nothing to guarantee they are in sync. At
the same time, the annotation of pages owned by the hypervisor is left
to the host itself using the __pkvm_mark_hyp hypercall. But clearly, by
the point we arrive to finalize_mappings() above, all the information I
need is already stored in the hyp pgtable. That is, it should be fairly
easy to walk the hyp stage-1, and for each valid mapping create a
matching annotation in the host stage-2 to mark the page shared or owned
by the hypervisor.

I'll have a go at implementing this in v3, which would guarantee
consistency across page-tables once the hypervisor is initialized, and
also allow to get rid of __pkvm_mark_hyp entirely. But if anybody thinks
this is a bad idea in the meantime, please shout!

Thanks,
Quentin
