 Support.

> We introduced 2 ioctls to let user application to set/get subpage write protection bitmap per gfn, each gfn corresponds to a bitmap.
> The user application, qemu, or some other security control daemon. will set the protection bitmap via this ioctl.

> 		__u64 npages;
> 		/* sub-page write-access bitmap array */
> 		__u32 access_map[SUBPAGE_MAX_BITMAP];
