As this is scanning pages one by one anyway, it will be useful
to have this return the # of pages enqueued.

Are we sure this int never overflows? Why not just use u64
or size_t straight away?

This looks quite reasonable. In fact virtio can be reworked to use
this too and then the original one can be dropped.

Have the time?
