Handle AMD SEV's kvm_arch_guest_memory_reclaimed() hook by having
__kvm_handle_hva_range() return whether or not an overlapping memslot

works, but kvm_arch_guest_memory_reclaimed() needs to run after dropping
mmu_lock, which makes .on_lock() and .on_unlock() asymmetrical.

Use a small struct to return the tuple of the notifier-specific return,
plus whether or not overlap was found.  Because the iteration helpers are
__always_inlined, practically speaking, the struct will never actually be
returned from a function call (not to mention the size of the struct will
be two bytes in practice).

Could have been split in two patches, but it's fine anyway.
