In this particular case SMM is not an issue because it cannot use VMX.
Therefore it's safe to ignore non-SMM address spaces.  You can then

int kvm_map_gfn(struct kvm_vcpu *vcpu gfn_t gfn,
                struct kvm_host_map *map)

        calling kvm_gfn_to_memslot + __kvm_map_gfn

which could also handle the caching aspect.  But please let's look at it
later, making the lifecycle change separate from the new API.
