From: Julian Stecklina <jsteckli@amazon.de>

Only the xpfo_kunmap call that needs to actually unmap the page
needs to be serialized. We need to be careful to handle the case,
where after the atomic decrement of the mapcount, a xpfo_kmap
increased the mapcount again. In this case, we can safely skip
modifying the page table.

Model-checked with up to 4 concurrent callers with Spin.
