Well, taking shortcuts because of virtualization-specific assumptions
already caused problems in the past.  See the messy iommu handling we
have in virtio-pci for example.

So I don't feel like going the "we know it's just normal pages, so lets
simplify things" route.

Beside that hostmap isn't important for secure buffers, we wouldn't
allow the guest mapping them anyway ;)
