That's pretty clever.

We potentially do have device specific regions which can support mmap,
for example the migration region. We'll need to think about how we
could even know if portions of those regions map to a device. We could
use the notifier to announce it and require the code supporting those
device specific regions manage it.

I'm not really clear what you're getting at with vm_pgoff though, could
you explain further?

For now it's consistent with what we have there already, I'd prefer a
separate cleanup of that before or after rather than introducing
inconsistency here. Thanks,

Alex
