    kvm: Map PFN-type memory regions as writable (if possible)
    For EPT-violations that are triggered by a read, the pages are also mapped with
    write permissions (if their memory region is also writable). That would avoid
    getting yet another fault on the same page when a write occurs.
    This optimization only happens when you have a "struct page" backing the memory
    region. So also enable it for memory regions that do not have a "struct page".
