    Ok, I realized I misunderstand all. Arm doesn't unmap memmap but reuse the page
    for memmap without modifing ptes. My routine only works when ARM uses sparsemem_vmemmap.
    But yes, it isn't.

    Hmm...How about using pfn_valid() for FLATMEM or avoid using SPARSEMEM ?
    If you want conrols lower than SPARSEMEM, FLATMEM works better because ARM unmaps memmap.
    What is the reason for SPARSEMEM ?
