Sorry, this optimization not broken anything, just my mistake, please review
this.

Subject: [PATCH v2 1/10] KVM: MMU: fix writable sync sp mapping

While we sync the unsync sp, we may mapping the spte writable, it's
dangerous, if one unsync sp's mapping gfn is another unsync page's gfn.

For example:
have two unsync pages SP1, SP2 and:

SP1.pte[0] = P
SP2.gfn's pfn = P
[SP1.pte[0] = SP2.gfn's pfn]

First, we unsync SP2, it will write protect for SP2.gfn since
SP1.pte[0] is mapping to this page, it will mark read only.

Then, we unsync SP1, SP1.pte[0] may mark to writable.

Now, we will write SP2.gfn by SP1.pte[0] mapping

This bug will corrupt guest's page table, fixed by mark read-only mapping
if the mapped gfn has shadow page
