With SNP/guest_memfd, private/encrypted memory should not be mappable,
and MMU notifications for HVA-mapped memory will only be relevant to
unencrypted guest memory. Therefore, the rationale behind issuing a
wbinvd_on_all_cpus() in sev_guest_memory_reclaimed() should not apply
for SNP guests and can be ignored.
