Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] KVM: x86/mmu: Skip mmu_notifier changes when possible

These patches reduce how often mmu_notifier updates block guest page
faults. The primary benefit of this is the reduction in the likelihood
of extreme latency when handling a page fault due to another thread
having been preempted while modifying host virtual addresses.

v3 -> v4:
 - Fix bug by skipping prefetch during invalidation

v2 -> v3:
 - Added patch to skip check for MMIO page faults
 - Style changes
