I don't think this is a case 2 here, nor is it any of the others. Feels
like not covered at all by the doc.

radeon has a mmu notifier (might be a bit broken, but hey whatever there's
other drivers which have the same concept, but less broken). So when you
do an munmap, radeon will release the page refcount.

Which case it that?

Note that currently only amdgpu doesn't work like that for gpu dma
directly to userspace ranges, it uses hmm and afaiui doens't hold a full
page pin refcount.

Cheers, Daniel
