[Xen-devel] [PATCH v7 01/12] x86/mm: allow a privileged PV domain to map guest mfns

In the case where a PV domain is mapping guest resources then it needs make
the HYPERVISOR_mmu_update call using DOMID_SELF, rather than the guest
domid, so that the passed in gmfn values are correctly treated as mfns
rather than gfns present in the guest p2m.

This patch removes a check which currently disallows mapping of a page when
the owner of the page tables matches the domain passed to
HYPERVISOR_mmu_update, but that domain is not the real owner of the page.
The check was introduced by patch d3c6a215ca9 ("x86: Clean up
get_page_from_l1e() to correctly distinguish between owner-of-pte and
owner-of-data-page in all cases") but it's not clear why it was needed.
