[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 20/39] arm/p2m: Make get_page_from_gva ready for altp2m

The function get_page_from_gva uses ARM's hardware support to translate
gva's to machine addresses. This function is used, among others, for
memory regulation purposes, e.g, within the context of memory ballooning.
To ensure correct behavior while altp2m is in use, we use the host's p2m
table for the associated gva to ma translation. This is required at this
point, as altp2m lazily copies pages from the host's p2m and even might
be flushed because of changes to the host's p2m (as it is done within
the context of memory ballooning).

v3: Cosmetic fixes.

    Make use of the p2m_(switch|restore)_vttbr_and_(g|s)et_flags macros
    to avoid code duplication.

v4: Remove initialization of the old vttbr outside of the macro
