It's true that we don't call migrate_vma_collect_pmd() for
migrate_device_page(), but this doesn't imply migration entries are not
created. We still call migrate_vma_unmap() which calls try_to_migrate()
to install migration entries.

When we have a vma migrate_vma_collect_pmd() is a fast path for the
common case a page is only mapped once. So migrate_vma_collect_pmd()
should fairly closely match try_to_migrate_one(). I did experiment
locally with removing the fast path to simplify the code, but it does
provide a meaningful performance improvement so I abandoned it.

I think you're running into the problem addressed by
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20211018045247.3128058-1-apopple@nvidia.com
but for DEVICE_COHERENT pages.

Based on that I think the approach below is wrong. You should update
try_to_migrate_one() to deal with DEVICE_COHERENT pages. It would make
sense to do that as part of patch 1 in this series.

The problem is that try_to_migrate_one() assumes folio_is_zone_device()
implies it is a DEVICE_PRIVATE page due to the check in
try_to_migrate().
