Actually they have already gone into upstream, since v5.13-rc1. :)
The path is tools/testing/selftests/kvm/kvm_page_table_test.c, so it
will be much convenient to test a 5.13 kernel, you can also have a try.

I am using the original test data from v3 in the cover-letter because
I think the test results will be almost the same with a different kernel.

Thanks,
Yanan
