    x86/ldt: Alter how invalidate_shadow_ldt() deals with TLB flushes
   
    Modify invalidate_shadow_ldt() to return a boolean indicating whether mappings
    have been dropped, rather than taking a flush parameter.  Tweak the internal
    logic to be able to ASSERT() that v->arch.pv_vcpu.shadow_ldt_mapcnt matches
    the number of PTEs removed.
   
    This allows MMUEXTOP_SET_LDT to avoid a local TLB flush if no LDT entries had
    been faulted in to begin with.
   
    Finally, correct a comment in __get_page_type().  Under no circumstance is it
    safe to forgo the TLB shootdown for GDT/LDT pages, as that would allow one
    vcpu to gain a writeable mapping to a frame still mapped as a GDT/LDT by
    another vcpu.
