So with Xen toolstack, the order is L4, L3, L2, L1s.. and with
the hypervisor it is L4, L1,... but in the future the order might
be L1, L1 ..., L1, L2, L3, L4 (potentially?) so this double loop
will loop around the addresses twice to catch this in case we get
it like this.

So two loops - and it could be put in a seperate function. That
would make this easier to read. Yeah, let me do it that way.
Thanks!
