Then put the call to kvm_map_hv_shared_decrypted() into
kvm_smp_prepare_boot_cpu() to denote that you're executing this whole
stuff only once during guest init.

Now you're doing additional jumping-through-hoops with that once static
var just so you can force something which needs to execute only once but
gets called in a per-CPU path.

See what I mean?
