Probably a problem on i386. How does npt handle faults when the guest
is using pae paging and the host (in our case the guest...) isn't? I
see it uses exit_info_2 for the address, which is a u64.

So we probably need to upgrade gva_t to a u64. Please send this as a
separate patch, and test on i386 hosts.

unsigned.

Maybe put the two in a struct, easier to pass around.
