How does this synchronise against pgmap being released? As I understand things
at this point we're not holding a reference on either the page or pgmap, so
the page and therefore the pgmap may have been freed.

I think a similar problem exists for device private fault handling as well and
it has been on my list of things to fix for a while. I think the solution is to
call try_get_page(), except it doesn't work with device pages due to the whole
refcount thing. That issue is blocking a fair bit of work now so I've started
looking into it.

This isn't very optimal - if a range contains more than one device page (which
seems likely) we will have to go around the whole gup/check_and_migrate loop
once for each device page which seems unnecessary. You should be able to either
build a list or migrate them as you go through the loop. I'm also currently
looking into how to extend migrate_pages() to support device pages which might
be useful here too.
