Can you rewrite the changelog without using the word 'we' I get
confused when it seems to reference the 'we' current implementation vs
the 'we' new implementation.

Perhaps these per-arch changes should be pulled out into separate prep patches?

If there is nothing to do and these pages are just going to be
released, why spend any effort clearing the vmemmap state?

Why is this changed to MHP_MEMMAP_DEVICE? Where does it get the altmap?

I'm failing to grok the get_nr_vmemmap_pages() api. It seems this is
more of a get_next_mapped_page() and perhaps it should VM_BUG_ON if it
is not passed a Vmemmap page.

The ->free member is meant to be the number of free pages in the
altmap this seems to be set to the number of pages being mapped. Am I
misreading?

So this silently overrides a passed in altmap if a flag is set? The
NVDIMM use case can't necessarily trust __memblk_altmap to be
consistent with what the nvdimm namespace has reserved.

Is this a candidate for a standalone patch? It seems out of place for
this patch.

Seems this should be caller (online_pages()) responsibility rather
than making this fixup internal to the helper... and if it's moved up
can it be pushed one more level up so even online_pages() need not
worry about this fixup? It just does not seem to an operation that
belongs to the online path. Might that eliminate the need for tracking
altmap parameters in struct page?
