Actually this is found by inspection.

In the current code, get_page() will uniformly called at "out_get_page"
in function stage2_map_walk_leaf(),

no matter the old ptep is valid or not.

When using stage2_unmap_walker() API to unmap a memory range, some
page-table pages might not be

freed if page_count of the pages is not right.

I agree at this point.

Not sufficient enough. When the old ptep is valid and old pte equlas new
pte, in this case, "True" is also returned by kvm_set_valid_leaf_pte()

and get_page() will still be called.
