Will finding p2m_invalid under various circumstances not confuse
something somewhere?

How about a single real p2m_special and the virtual types you suggest?

Or, TBH, lets just use the two types you propose and do all this when we

rw bit might serve as a hint to us in a couple of years that we can
easily get rid of them...
