After the rework it even fails to boot a guest with gbpages enabled. This week

Does the failure happen only when both guest/host use gbpages, or does
it also happen if gbpages is disabled on either one?

It happens only when the guest uses gbpages. If I disable them at boot the
linux guest boots fine and runs stable.

This seems to point the finger at the write protection logic, either we create a gbpage even though there are shadowed page tables in its area, or (more likely) we don't break up a gbpage when we write protect a page.
