Could be done, but not by modifying guest_handle_okay() (which
penalizes all its users), nor by (incorrectly) open-coding
compat_handle_okay(). And neither should any such implementation
use is_pv_32on64_domain() twice - use the conditional operator
instead (that way you also avoid evaluating arguments twice).

So you could either introduce e.g. any_guest_handle_okay(), or
switch all current users of guest_handle_okay() to, say,
native_handle_okay() (perhaps with the exception of those where
the compat mode wrapper source files #define guest_handle_okay()
to compat_handle_okay(), which could then be dropped).
