I am not sure whether I understand this correctly. If they are not
tracked with separate roots, it means they use the same page table (root).

So IIUC what you said is to support "mirror PT" at any sub-tree of the
page table?

That will only complicate things. I don't think we should consider
this. In reality, we only have TDX and SEV-SNP. We should have a
simple solution to cover both of them.

I don't think we need to distinguish the two.

Even we do this, if I understand your saying correctly,
kvm_has_private_root() isn't just enough -- theoretically we can have a
mirror pt at a sub-tree at any level.
