It's possible for untrack_possible_nx_huge_page() to be called before the above
snippet, but the stat won't be decremented in that case since the page won't be on
the list of possible NX huge pages, i.e. list_empty() will be true.

void untrack_possible_nx_huge_page(struct kvm *kvm, struct kvm_mmu_page *sp)
{
if (list_empty(&sp->possible_nx_huge_page_link))
return;

--kvm->stat.nx_lpage_splits;

And by not calling track_possible_nx_huge_page() (this bug fix), nx_lpage_splits
won't be incorrectly incremented.
