HYPERVISOR_shared_info can only be mapped in this scope without refactoring

I don't think it should be, still a sanity check but I don't think its needed there
because hibernation will fail in any case if thats the case.
However, HYPERVISOR_shared_info does needs to be re-mapped on resume as its been
marked to dummy address on suspend. Its also safe in case va changes.
Does the answer your question?
