Hmm, what about adding wrappers for these few cases where TDP MMU splits
cleanly from the existing paths? The thought being that it would keep the
control flow somewhat straightforward, and might also help us keep the two
paths aligned (more below).

Somewhat tangetially related to the above, it feels like the TDP MMU helper
here would be better named tdp_mmu_map() or so. KVM has already done the
"fault" part, in that it has faulted in the page (if relevant) and obtained
a pfn. What's left is the actual insertion into the TDP page tables.

And again related to the helper, ideally tdp_mmu_map() and __direct_map()
would have identical prototypes. Ditto for the fast page fault paths. In
theory, that would allow the compiler to generate identical preamble, with
only the final check being different. And if the compiler isn't smart enough
to do that on its own, we might even make the wrapper non-inline, with an
"unlikely" annotation to coerce the compiler to generate a tail call for the
preferred path.
