commit aa1acff356bbedfd03b544051f5b371746735d89 upstream.

The update_va_mapping hypercall can fail if the VA isn't present
in the guest's page tables.  Under certain loads, this can
result in an OOPS when the target address is in unpopulated vmap
space.

While we're at it, add comments to help explain what's going on.

This isn't a great long-term fix.  This code should probably be
changed to use something like set_memory_ro.
