I ran access test in kvm-unit-test for previous version, which hasn't
this code(also in my local repo "enable_ept" was explicitly set to
0 in order to test the shadow mode). But I did not test this one. I'm
truely sorry for the negligence - even trying to compile should make
this happen!

Should we submit another version? Any suggestions on the test cases?

Thanks
