I wonder if it might turn out cleaner to integrate this check into
is_mapping_aligned (which really is more of a "can we use a superpage"

        /* mem access cannot use super pages */
        if ( a != p2m_access_rwx && level_size != THIRD_SIZE )
                return false;

Ack, that would make sense.

One a closer look, is_mapping_aligned is also used when removing pages, where we would need to add an exception.. so it doesn't look cleaner after all.
