Subject[PATCH 06/46] KVM: MMU: Use different shadows when EFER.NXE changes
Date
A pte that is shadowed when the guest EFER.NXE=1 is not valid when
EFER.NXE=0; if bit 63 is set, the pte should cause a fault, and since the
shadow EFER always has NX enabled, this won't happen.

Fix by using a different shadow page table for different EFER.NXE bits. This
allows vcpus to run correctly with different values of EFER.NXE, and for
transitions on this bit to be handled correctly without requiring a full
flush.
