    Ignore me. I got confused.

    I will resend below approach.

    static inline int memmap_valid(unsigned long pfn)
    {
    struct page *page = pfn_to_page(pfn);
    struct page *__pg = virt_to_page(page);
    return page_private(__pg) == MAGIC_MEMMAP && PageReserved(__pg);
    }

    Thanks, all.
