Actually, why is this even dropping the lock to do the alloc? The allocs are
coming from the caches, which are designed to be invoked while holding the
spin lock.

Also relevant is that, other than this code, the only user of
find_tdp_mmu_root_with_role() is kvm_tdp_mmu_root_hpa_for_role(), and that
helper is itself unused. I.e. the "find" can be open coded.

Putting those two together yields this, which IMO is much cleaner.

static struct kvm_mmu_page *get_tdp_mmu_vcpu_root(struct kvm_vcpu *vcpu)
{
union kvm_mmu_page_role role;
struct kvm *kvm = vcpu->kvm;
struct kvm_mmu_page *root;

role = page_role_for_level(vcpu, vcpu->arch.mmu->shadow_root_level);

spin_lock(&kvm->mmu_lock);

/* Check for an existing root before allocating a new one. */
for_each_tdp_mmu_root(kvm, root) {
if (root->role.word == role.word) {
get_tdp_mmu_root(root);
spin_unlock(&kvm->mmu_lock);
return root;
}
}

root = alloc_tdp_mmu_page(vcpu, 0, vcpu->arch.mmu->shadow_root_level);
root->root_count = 1;

list_add(&root->link, &kvm->arch.tdp_mmu_roots);

spin_unlock(&kvm->mmu_lock);

return root;
}
