The overloading of root_gfn is pretty bad. Also, we don't really need
to check root_gfn for the direct case (the guest can easily switch cr3
later to one that would fail the check).

However, I'll apply the patch since it fixes the direct problem. More
involved fixes can come later (esp. after the nnpt patches land).
