It only keeps that bit, because it's the only exit qualification bit
defined for PML full vmexits (27.2.2).

The SDM doesn't say so. The "if" above matches the checks in 26.2.1.1
of the manual (Checks on VMX Controls, VM-Execution Control Fields).

If EPT A/D is disabled we cannot get here (update_accessed_dirty_bits is
never called).

Yes, it triggers a fault

This happens if the PML address is invalid (where on real hardware, the
write would just be "eaten") or MMIO (where we expect to diverge from
real hardware behavior).

L1's PML contains L1 host physical addresses, i.e. L0 guest physical
addresses. This GPA comes from vmcs02 and hence it is L0's GPA.

L0's HPA is marked by hardware through PML, as usual. If L0 has EPT A/D
but not PML, it can still provide emulated PML to L1, but L0's HPA will
be marked as dirty via write protection.
