I dare say at this point you might just be that person :) I looked at
the patch, one issue with p2m_change_type_range in its current form is
that it's unclear how it would behave when the range contains remapped
gfns in an altp2m (either a page that remaps to this range, or a page
that remaps from the range). According to the current altp2m approach
I would say the altp2m views should probably just get completely reset
if there is such a remapping.
