Except if you do shadow paging (through nested EPT) and then it bombs
immediately. :)

This is true, but having two counters is necessary (in the current
implementation) because otherwise you zap more than the requested ratio
of pages.

The simplest solution is to add a "bool tdp_page" to struct
kvm_mmu_page, so that you can have a single list of
lpage_disallowed_pages and a single thread. The while loop can then
dispatch to the right "zapper" code.

Anyway this patch is completely broken, so let's kick it away to the
next round.
