Andrew is saying that the mapping which is currently at the virtual
address is *already* a grant mapping, not that you are trying to grant
map something here. Grant maps need to be unmapped with the grant unmap
hypercall, not just by rewriting the PTE. (IIRC).

You should not be using grants to map PCI IO space, no.
