Maybe you are right, i just think is more quickly by using SPTE_NO_DIRTY flag
to judge whether need updated. I'll modify this patch as your suggestion.

Ah, sorry, i miss it, spte |= SPTE_NO_DIRTY should behind of following assignment.

If the guest mapping is writable and it !dirty, we mark SPTE_NO_DIRTY flag in
the spte, when the next #PF occurs, we just need check this flag and see whether
gpte's D bit is set, if it's true, we zap this spte and map to the correct sp.

OK, but allow me do it later :-)
