Not really, as the write which is failing is also in dom0 (so on the same
CPU). I think the tlb should be properly invalidated. Just to make sure
you can try adding
pmap_tlb_shootdown(pmap, va, 0, opte);
just after xpq_update_foreign() in pmap_enter_ma(). But as we're
switching pmaps on return to userland, this shouldn't be needed.
