When can this be called? What prevents concurrent modification of the user page
tables?

i.e. must mmap_sem be held?

Does this really need to be architecture specific?

Core mm code manages to walk user page tables just fine...

Can we please separate the address and return value? e.g. pass the PA by
reference and return an error code.

AFAIK, zero is a valid PA, and even if the tables exist, they might point there
in the presence of an error.

Was there some problem with:

phys_addr = pmd_page_paddr(*pud);

... and similar for the other levels?

... I'd rather introduce new helpers than more open-coded calculations.

Thanks,
Mark.
