Subject[PATCH] mm/dev_pfn: Exclude MEMORY_DEVICE_PRIVATE while computing virtual address
The presence of struct page does not guarantee linear mapping for the pfn
physical range. Device private memory which is non-coherent is excluded
from linear mapping during devm_memremap_pages() though they will still
have struct page coverage. Just check for device private memory before
giving out virtual address for a given pfn.

All these helper functions are all pfn_t related but could not figure out
another way of determining a private pfn without looking into it's struct
page. pfn_t_to_virt() is not getting used any where in mainline kernel.Is
it used by out of tree drivers ? Should we then drop it completely ?
