When using mmu notifiers, we are allowed to remove the page count
reference tooken by get_user_pages to a specific page that is mapped
inside the shadow page tables.

This is needed so we can balance the pagecount against mapcount

(Right now kvm increase the pagecount and does not increase the
mapcount when mapping page into shadow page table entry,
so when comparing pagecount against mapcount, you have no
reliable result.)
