... this code, I'd like to ask that such constructs be avoided
and this be a single return statement:

    return !paging_mode_translate(d) || is_hardware_domain(d);

I also think you may want to consider dropping the initial
"The" from the comment. I'm further unconvinced "foreign
entries" needs saying when set_foreign_p2m_entry() deals with
exclusively such. In the end the original comment moved here
would probably suffice, no need for any more additions than
perhaps a simple "(see set_foreign_p2m_entry())".
