Should be true. I'll think it over again...

As mentioned in the IRC - I think I've got a "success case" of
that... :) Please see below:

virtlab423:~ $ ./dirty_log_test
Test iterations: 32, interval: 10 (ms)
Testing guest mode: PA-bits:52, VA-bits:48, 4K pages
Supported guest physical address width: 46
guest physical test memory offset: 0x3fffbffef000
Dirtied 216064 pages
Total bits checked: dirty (204841), clear (7922119), track_next (60730)

So on above E5-2640 I got PA width==46 and it worked well. Does this
mean that 39bits is not really a PA restriction anywhere? Actually
that also matches with the other fact that if we look into
virt_pg_map() it's indeed allocating PML4 entries rather than having
only one.

Thanks,
