This could now be rewritten to:

		if (exec_fault ||
		    (fault_status == FSC_PERM && stage2_is_exec(kvm, fault_ipa)))
			new_pmd = kvm_s2pmd_mkexec(new_pmd);

which we could even consider making

static bool stage2_should_exec(struct kvm *kvm, phys_addr_t addr,
			       bool exec_fault, unsigned long fault_status)
{
	/*
	 * If we took an execution fault we will have made the
	 * icache/dcache coherent and should now let the s2 mapping be
	 * executable.
	 *
	 * Write faults (!exec_fault && FSC_PERM) are orthogonal to
	 * execute permissions, and we preserve whatever we have.
	 */
	return exec_fault ||
	       (fault_status == FSC_PERM && stage2_is_exec(kvm, fault_ipa));
}

The benefit would be to have this documentation in a single place and
slightly simply both the hugetlb and !hugetlb blocks.
