Note that using A/D bits introduces new tradeoffs (when just a few bits
are dirtied per iteration, we reduce guest overhead, but increase host
overhead, since it has to scan a large number of sptes), and also a
large fraction of deployed systems don't have A/D bits support. But it
should affect our thinking - since in the long term all hosts will have it.
