commit 43c1ff8b75011bc3e3e923adf31ba815864a2494 upstream.

Memory regions marked as "no-map" in the host device-tree routinely
include TrustZone carev-outs and DMA pools. Although donating such pages
to the hypervisor may not breach confidentiality, it could be used to
corrupt its state in uncontrollable ways. To prevent this, let's block
host-initiated memory transitions targeting "no-map" pages altogether in
nVHE protected mode as there should be no valid reason to do this in
current operation.

Thankfully, the pKVM EL2 hypervisor has a full copy of the host's list
of memblock regions, so we can easily check for the presence of the
MEMBLOCK_NOMAP flag on a region containing pages being donated from the
