+1 to Sean's feedback to unwind everything here properly here.
Comments of the nature of "XYZ should happen" -- without a test (e.g.,
selftest or kvm-unit-test) to ensure the XYZ _does_ happen -- are a
time bomb waiting to happen.

Also, I wonder if we leave pages, RMPUPDATE'd to immutable in previous
loop iterations, is it possible for them to remain as immutable and be
reused later on (after this guest is destroyed)? And if this happens,
will we get an RMP violation? Even if the answer is no -- go read this
code 2,000 lines away -- it handles this case. That's still not a very
satisfying answer. I'd rather see things cleaned up ASAP as soon as
the code starts to go off the rails.
