I appreciate this needing to change, but it is a no-go to expose an
implementation detail of the hypervisor (number of accelerated
entries being 3) trough a hypercall interface (and even less so by
scattering around literal 3-s).

Please work towards a different solution, leaving the tool stack
agnostic to the number of accelerated entries. And if at all
possible, arrange for the patch to be split into tool stack and
hypervisor pieces, such that they can be applied independently
(and in either order).
