Avi,

Thanks for your review.

Yeah, it's my mistake, i'll fix it in the next version.

Actually, in kvm_mmu_unprotect_page() function, it need find out
invalid shadow pages:

|	hlist_for_each_entry_safe(sp, node, n, bucket, hash_link)
|		if (sp->gfn == gfn && !sp->role.direct) {
|			pgprintk("%s: gfn %lx role %x\n", __func__, gfn,
|				 sp->role.word);
|			r = 1;
|			if (kvm_mmu_zap_page(kvm, sp))
|				goto restart;
|		}

I'm not sure whether we can skip invalid sp here, since it can change this
function's return value. :-(

In current code, no code simply use role and gfn to find sp,
in kvm_mmu_get_page(), we need do other work for
'sp->gfn == gfn && sp->role != role' sp, and other functions only need compare
some members in role, but not all members.
