Effectively force kvm_mmu_page_fault() to opt-in to allowing retry to
make it more obvious when and why it allows emulation to be retried.
Previously this approach was less convenient due to retry and
re-execute behavior being controlled by separate flags that were also
inverted in their implementations (opt-in versus opt-out).
