Making KVM_REQ_MMU_SYNC be able remotely is good idea.
But if the sp is not linked, the @sp might not be synced even we
tried many times. So we should continue to link it.

But if we continue to link it, KVM_REQ_MMU_SYNC should be extended to
sync all roots (current root and prev_roots).  And maybe add a
KVM_REQ_MMU_SYNC_CURRENT for current root syncing.

It is not going to be a simple.  I have a new way to sync pages
and also fix the problem,  but that include several non-fix patches.

We need to fix this problem in the simplest way.  In my patch
mmu_sync_children() has a @root argument.  I think we can disallow
releasing the lock when @root is false. Is it OK?
