Is it worth returning a "flush" value to the caller, to avoid multiple
kvm_flush_remote_tlbs_with_address when e.g. zapping a 3rd-level PTE?

Also I prefer if we already include here a "stupid" version of
handle_changed_spte that just calls __handle_changed_spte. (If my
suggestion is accepted, handle_changed_spte could actually handle the
flushing).
