We don't seem to have an immediate need for PRIVATE_PASID. There are some talks
about potential usages, but nothing concrete. I think it might be good to
get rid of it now and add when we really need.

For SUPERVISOR_MODE, the idea is to have aux domain. Baolu is working on
something to replace. Certainly the entire kernel address is opening up
the whole kimono.. so we are looking at dynamically creating mappings on demand.
It might take some of the benefits of SVA in general with no need to create
mappings, but for security somebody has to pay the price :-)

Cheers,
Ashok
