I think you should try to handle it anyway. I'm sure you could hack QEMU
to do this test it, but even if you don't, better plug that hole right now.

Just move the whole function to mmu.c, as it makes more sense to have it
there. And while you're at it, how about moving the other
memslot/memory_region stubs?

Looks sensible otherwise.
