Indeed.

where exactly in vm_normal_page? Note I already checked vm_normal_page
before sending the prev email and I didn't immediately see. I search
return and they all return NULL except the return pfn_to_page(pfn), so
is pfn_to_page that returns -EFAULT (the implementations I checked
don't but there are plenty that I didn't check...).
