Paolo Bonzini - July 4, 2013, 3:13 p.m.
phys_sections_clear is invoked after the dispatch tree has been
destroyed.  This leaves a window where phys_sections_nb > 0 but the
subpages are not valid anymore, which is a recipe for use-after-free
bugs.

Move the destruction of subpages in phys_sections_clear.  We will
still destroy the subpages when an address space is cleaned up,
because address_space_destroy will clear as->root and commit the
change before it calls address_space_destroy_dispatch.
