Reasonable!

Will remove.

I think it is not bad, since it is really simple, and for tdp, we also need to
set shadow_mmio_mask bits which causes misconfig/rsvd fault

Um. i think walking guest page table is slower, it needs to walk memslots for many times
and it triggers page fault if the host page is swapped.

And it is hardly missed, since for tdp, it infrequency zaps shadow pages, for soft mmu,
the mmio spte is always unsync, and in guest, the mmio region is always mapped by kernel,
so it is infrequency to be update and lazily flushed.

If it is direct, we only need to compare the pga, and direct=0, we only need to
compare gva, i'll fix the code to make it clear.
