mfn_valid() with invalid parameter shouldn't cause panic.
It may cause tlb miss fault, but the fault should be handled specially
by frametable_fault in ivt.S and should be recovered resulting
in mfn_valid() returning false.

I agree with you that there's something wrong in mfn_valid()
I haven't aware of the issue.
