And the PFN has been translated to disk offset in pmem driver in order to do RMAP search in filesystem. So, if we have to pass it, every function in this routine needs to add an argument for this PFN. I was hoping I can avoid passing PFN through the whole stack with the help of this dax_load_pfn().

OK, I think you need to create:

struct memory_failure {
phys_addr_t start;
phys_addr_t end;
unsigned long flags;

(a memory failure might not be an entire page, so working in pfns isn't
the best approach)

Then that can be passed to ->memory_failure() and then deeper to
->notify_failure(), and finally into xfs_corrupt_helper().
