Well, I think I didn't make myself clear.

I don't object to have this helper. If it helps, then we can have it.

My objection is the current implementation of it, because it is
*conceptually* wrong for SEV-SNP.

Btw, I just look at the dev branch.

For the common code, it is used in kvm_tdp_mmu_map() and
kvm_tdp_mmu_fast_pf_get_last_sptep() to get whether a GPA is private.

As said above, I don't see why we need a helper with the "current
implementation" (which consults kvm_shared_gfn_mask()) for them. We can
just use fault->gfn + fault->is_private for such purpose.

It is also used in the TDX code like TDX variant handle_ept_violation()
and tdx_vcpu_init_mem_region(). For them to be honest I don't quite
care whether a helper is used. We can have a helper if we have multiple
callers, but this helper should be in TDX code, but not common MMU code.
