Translating a VA to a IPA is expensive. Currently, Xen is assuming that
HPFAR_EL2 is only valid when the stage-2 data/instruction abort happened
during a translation table walk of a first stage translation (i.e S1PTW
is set).

However, based on the ARM ARM (D7.2.34 in DDI 0487A.j), the register is
also valid when the data/instruction abort occured for a translation
fault.

With this change, the VA -> IPA translation will only happen for
permission faults that are not related to a translation table of a
first stage translation.

    Changes in v3:
        - Use the correct union to get the s1ptw bit.

    Changes in v2:
        - Use fsc in the switch in do_trap_data_abort_guest
