KVM: Write protect the updated slot only when dirty logging is enabled
Calling kvm_mmu_slot_remove_write_access() for a deleted slot does nothing but search for non-existent mmu pages which have mappings to that deleted memory; this is safe but a waste of time. Since we want to make the function rmap based in a later patch, in a manner which makes it unsafe to be called for a deleted slot, we makes the caller see if the slot is non-zero and being dirty logged.
