Subject[PATCH 33/50] KVM: MMU: Disable write access on clean large pages
Date
By forcing clean huge pages to be read-only, we have separate roles
for the shadow of a clean large page and the shadow of a dirty large
page. This is necessary because different ptes will be instantiated
for the two cases, even for read faults.
