I do not know other places, but my worry is that trap_init() is arch
specific and we cannot guarantee that arches won't do virt to phys in
trap_init() in other places. Therefore, I think a proper fix is simply
allow DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT when it is safe to do virt to phys without
accessing struct pages, which is with SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP.
