The hardware doesn't care where the memory is. ODP is just a generic
mechanism to provide demand-fault behavior for a mirrored page table.

ODP has the same issue as everything else, it needs to translate a
page table entry into a DMA address, and we have no API to do that
when the page table points to peer-peer memory.
