Subject: [PATCH v4 1/2] KVM: x86/mmu: Skip mmu_notifier check when handling MMIO page fault

From: Sean Christopherson <seanjc@...gle.com>

Don't retry a page fault due to an mmu_notifier invalidation when
handling a page fault for a GPA that did not resolve to a memslot, i.e.
an MMIO page fault.  Invalidations from the mmu_notifier signal a change
in a host virtual address (HVA) mapping; without a memslot, there is no
HVA and thus no possibility that the invalidation is relevant to the
page fault being handled.

Note, the MMIO vs. memslot generation checks handle the case where a
pending memslot will create a memslot overlapping the faulting GPA.  The
mmu_notifier checks are orthogonal to memslot updates.
