x86 loops through the reverse-map link list rooted at the memory slot.  
The linked list links all sptes for a single hva.

So, it's like you describe, except it's an array of lists instead of a 
single list.  We need per-page rmap lists to be able to remove a page's 
sptes in response to an mmu notifier callback, and to be able to write 
protect a guest page if it's used as a page table.
