[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 3/4] xen/arm: create_p2m_entries should not call free_domheap_page

The guest is entitled to leak a page from its p2m (by overwriting it) if
it wants to. Since the memory is effectively lost to it (can't even be
recovered by XENMEM increase reservation etc).

In these cases we shouldn't call free_domheap_page to free the existing
page from create_p2m_entries, because it resets the reference counting
but the page is still allocated to the guest (even if not in the p2m
anymore) and common grant_table code is also going to call put_page on

Changes in v3:

- rephrase commit message.
