Just as a side note - we wouldn't really have to unmap the mapping range
covered by the DAX exceptional entry. It would be enough to find out
whether such range is mapped and bail out in that case. But that would
still be pretty expensive for DAX - we'd have to do rmap walk similar as in
dax_mapping_entry_mkclean() and IMHO it is not worth it. So I agree with
what you did. You can add:
