How about moving this right before for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp? As can_unsync is passed as
parameter, so there's no point checking it several times.

We can not do this. What we are doing here is checking if we have shadow page mapping
for 'gfn':
a) if no, it can be writable.
I think in this case you should also check whether the GFN is being write protection tracked. Ex, if the spte never exists when you add the GFN to write protection tracking, and in this case I think mmu_need_write_protect should also report true. Right?

b) if yes, check 'can_unsync' to see if these shadow pages can make to be 'unsync'.

Your suggestion can break the point a).

A further thinking is can we move it to mmu_need_write_protect? Passing can_unsync as parameter to
kvm_unsync_pages sounds a little bit odd.

          if (s->unsync)
          WARN_ON(s->role.level != PT_PAGE_TABLE_LEVEL);
How about large page mapping? Such as if guest uses 2M mapping and its shadow is indirect, does above WARN_ON still meet? As you removed the PT level check in mmu_need_write_protect.

The lager mapping are on the non-leaf shadow pages which can be figured out by
kvm_page_track_check_mode() before we call this function.
Actually I am not quite understanding how large page mapping is implemented. I see in kvm_mmu_get_page, when sp is allocated, it is large page mapping disabled, but I think we do support large shadow mapping, right? I mean theoretically if guest uses 2M mapping and shadow mapping can certainly use 2M mapping as well, and the 2M shadow mapping can also be 'unsynced' (as a leaf mapping table). But in your series I see if we write protect some GFN, the shadow large page mapping is always disabled.

Am I wrong?
