As Sean pointed out, this should check against fault->is_private instead
of the slot. For private fault, the level is retrieved and stored to
fault->max_level in kvm_faultin_pfn_private() instead of here.

For shared fault, it will continue to query host_level below. For
private fault, the host level has already been accounted in
kvm_faultin_pfn_private().
