It's used only for lowmem:

static inline bool addr_is_in_mem(unsigned long addr)
{
return likely(addr >= PAGE_OFFSET && addr < (unsigned long)high_memory);
}



static __always_inline void check_memory_region(unsigned long addr,
size_t size, bool write)
{

....
if (!addr_is_in_mem(addr))
return;
// check shadow here
