gntdev is the only user of this, the kmap_ops parameter there is:
use_ptemod ? map->kmap_ops + offset : NULL
where:
use_ptemod = !xen_feature(XENFEAT_auto_translated_physmap);
So I think we can't rely on kmap_ops to decide whether we should
m2p_override or not.

Sounds better, but as far as I see gntdev set that flag in
find_grant_ptes, which is called only

if (use_ptemod) {
err = apply_to_page_range(vma->vm_mm, vma->vm_start,
vma->vm_end - vma->vm_start,
find_grant_ptes, map);

So if xen_feature(XENFEAT_auto_translated_physmap), we don't have
kmap_ops, and GNTMAP_application_map is not set as well, but I guess we
still need m2p_override. Or not? I'm a bit confused, maybe because of
Monday ...
