Takuya Yoshikawa - July 2, 2012, 8:59 a.m.
When we invalidate a THP page, we call the handler with the same
rmap_pde argument 512 times in the following loop:

  for each guest page in the range
    for each level
      unmap using rmap

This patch avoids these extra handler calls by changing the loop order
like this:

  for each level
    for each rmap in the range
      unmap using rmap

With the preceding patches in the patch series, this made THP page
invalidation more than 5 times faster on our x86 host: the host became
more responsive during swapping the guest's memory as a result.
