Nitpick: you could write:

bool foreign = PFN_DOWN(dev_addr) == page_to_pfn(page);

or even a static inline xen_foreign_page(page, dev_addr) function for
clarity. This code lacks comments.

I'm not sure we need to check map_page() here. I thought it's always
present as host DMA API does not check for it.
