We don't really use block mappings for the hyp stage-1, since pretty
much forever (see the loop in pkvm_create_mappings_locked() for ex), so
handling it here would be somewhat unnecessary complexity. Handling this
in the pgtable code itself (which I assume would mean proactively
re-mapping the rest of the range with page-granularity mappings or
something along those lines) is tricky because of BBM and concurrency,
so I'd rather avoid handling same-level aborts at EL2 and all that mess
unless we have a good reason. Is there a use-case where you think that'd
be needed?

Cheers,
Quentin
