size_t is an odd type choice for doing address arithmetic.

Again, these are really odd choices for types. vmap() returns a void*
pointer, on which you can do arithmetic. Why bother keeping another
type to which you have to cast to and from?

BTW, our usual "pointer stored in an integer type" is 'unsigned long',
if a pointer needs to be manipulated.

Why are you doing the local_irq_save()?

> + offset_complement = PAGE_SIZE - offset;
> + size = min(n_bytes, offset_complement);

Can you even call vmap() (which sleeps) with interrupts off?

You really need some kmap_atomic()-style accessors to wrap this stuff
for you. This little pattern is repeated over and over.

...

> +const char WR_ERR_PAGE_MSG[] = "Failed to remap write rare page.";

Doesn't the compiler de-duplicate duplicated strings for you? Is there
any reason to declare these like this?
