I think TDX can use it with slight change. Pass vcpu instead of KVM, page pin
down and mmu_lock.  TDX requires non-leaf Secure page tables to be populated
before adding a leaf.  Maybe with the assumption that vcpu doesn't run, GFN->PFN
relation is stable so that mmu_lock isn't needed? What about punch hole?

The flow would be something like as follows.

- lock slots_lock

- kvm_gmem_populate(vcpu)
  - pin down source page instead of do_memcopy.
  - get pfn with __kvm_gmem_get_pfn()

  - read lock mmu_lock
  - in the post_populate callback
    - lookup tdp mmu page table to check if the table is populated.
      lookup only version of kvm_tdp_mmu_map().
      We need vcpu instead of kvm.
  - read unlock mmu_lock

- unlock slots_lock
