On booke with ISA 2.06 hypervisor extensions, there's MAS8[VF] that will
trigger a DSI that gets sent to the hypervisor even if normal DSIs go
directly to the guest. You'll still need to zero out the execute
permission bits.

For other booke, you could use one of the user bits in MAS3 (along with
zeroing out all the permission bits), which you could get to by doing a
tlbsx.
