This is comically trivial to hit, as it fires when running guest_memfd_test on a
!SNP host. Presumably the correct fix is to simply do nothing for !sev_snp_guest(),
but that's easier said than done due to the lack of a @kvm in .gmem_invalidate().

That too is not a big fix, but that's beside the point. IMO, the fact that I'm
the first person to (completely inadvertantly) hit this rather basic bug is a
good hint that we should wait until 6.11 to merge SNP support.
