    gnttab: don't use possibly unbounded tail calls
   
    There is no guarantee that the compiler would actually translate them
    to branches instead of calls, so only ones with a known recursion limit
    are okay:
    - __release_grant_for_copy() can call itself only once, as
      __acquire_grant_for_copy() won't permit use of multi-level transitive
      grants,
    - __acquire_grant_for_copy() is fine to call itself with the last
      argument false, as that prevents further recursion,
    - __acquire_grant_for_copy() must not call itself to recover from an
      observed change to the active entry's pin count
   
    This is part of XSA-226.
