SubjectRe: [PATCH] KVM: x86: Reduce retpoline performance impact in slot_handle_level_range()

Actually, testing this with my fairly minimal config, it actually
makes for *smaller* code to inline those things.

That may be a quirk of my configuration, or maybe I screwed something
else up, but:

[torvalds@i7 linux]$ size ~/mmu.o arch/x86/kvm/mmu.o
text data bss dec hex filename
85587 9310 120 95017 17329 /home/torvalds/mmu.o
85531 9310 120 94961 172f1 arch/x86/kvm/mmu.o

so the attached patch actually shrank things down by about 50 bytes
because of the code simplification.

Of course, I have been known to screw up retpoline testing in the
past, so my numbers are suspect ;). Somebody should double-check me.
