x86: don't allow page table updates on non-PV page tables in do_mmu_update()

paging_write_guest_entry() and paging_cmpxchg_guest_entry() aren't
consistently supported for non-PV guests (they'd deref NULL for PVH or
non-HAP HVM ones). Don't allow respective MMU_* operations on the
page tables of such domains.

This is XSA-109.
