Subject[PATCH 04/14] KVM: Play nice with read-only memslots when querying host page size
Date
Open code an equivalent of kvm_vcpu_gfn_to_memslot() when querying the
host page size to avoid the "writable" check in __gfn_to_hva_many(),
which will always fail on read-only memslots due to gfn_to_hva()
assuming writes. Functionally, this allows x86 to create large mappings
for read-only memslots that are backed by HugeTLB mappings.

Note, the changelog for commit 05da45583de9 ("KVM: MMU: large page
support") states "If the largepage contains write-protected pages, a
large pte is not used.", but "write-protected" refers to pages that are
temporarily read-only, e.g. read-only memslots didn't even exist at the
time.

Fixes: 4d8b81abc47b ("KVM: introduce readonly memslot")
