Btw., I'm additionally having trouble seeing this shattering of a
superpage: For one, xc_core_arch_get_scratch_gpfn() could be
a little less simplistic. And then even with the currently chosen
value (outside of the range of valid GFNs at that point in time)
there shouldn't be a larger page to be shattered, as there should
be no mapping at all at that index. But perhaps I'm just blind and
don't see the obvious ...
