Subject: [PATCH v2][next] PCI/P2PDMA: Fix potential undefined behavior bug in
 struct pci_p2pdma_pagemap

`struct dev_pagemap` is a flexible structure, which means that it
contains a flexible-array member at the bottom. This could potentially
lead to an overwrite of the objects following `pgmap` in `struct
pci_p2pdma_pagemap`, when `nr_range > 1`. This is currently not the
case (notice that `nr_range` is hardcoded to `1`), however as commit
b7b3c01b1915 ("mm/memremap_pages: support multiple ranges per invocation")
mentions in the subject line, this code can `support multiple
ranges per invocation`. So, we'd better prevent any problems that may
arise in the future.

Fix this by placing the declaration of object `pgmap` at the end of
`struct pci_p2pdma_pagemap`.

-Wflex-array-member-not-at-end is coming in GCC-14, and we are getting
ready to enable it globally.
