This one keeps coming up again, and I think has not been explained
very clearly.  For me, the important detail is that this is basically
an extension of the VMCx structures, and not part of any per-vcpu/per-p2m


ISTR map_domain_page_global() slots being about as rare as xenheap
pages, but I guess both of those have changed a fair amount.
