First of all avoid excessive conversions. copy_{from,to}_guest(), for

- do_physdev_op_compat() didn't use the param form for its parameter,
- {hap,shadow}_track_dirty_vram() wrongly used the param form,
- compat processor Px logic failed to check compatibility of native and
   compat structures not further converted.

As this eliminates all users of guest_handle_from_param() and as there's
no real need to allow for conversions in both directions, drop the
macros as well.

Nit: switch to uint32_t while there?

Unless I hear objections, I'm intending to commit this then in a
day or two with the suggested change made and the R-b given. Of
course a formally required ack for the Arm side dropping of
guest_handle_from_param() would still be nice ...

I missed the small change on Arm sorry:
