From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@linux.alibaba.com>

Pagetable roots in prev_roots[] are likely to be reused soon and
there is no much overhead to keep it with a new need_sync field
introduced.

With the help of the new need_sync field, pagetable roots are
kept as much as possible, and they will be re-synced before reused
instead of being dropped.

This patch is just for RFC.
  Is the idea Ok?
  If the idea is Ok, we need to reused one bit from pgd or hpa
    as need_sync to save memory.  Which one is better?
