I don't disagree with the code change, but I don't see how stripping the offset
can be problematic for the MMIO page cache.  I assume you're referring to
handle_abnormal_pfn() -> vcpu_cache_mmio_info().  The "gva" is masked with
PAGE_MASK, i.e. the offset is stripped anyways.  And fundamentally, that cache
is tied to the granularity of the memslots, tracking the offset would be wrong.
