Good point. The "page" pointer (and memory range) passed to this
function has been allocated with alloc_pages(), so the range is
guaranteed to be physically contiguous but it does not imply a single
mem_map[] array. For arm64 with SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP_ENABLE it's safe but
not all architectures use this (especially on 32-bit).

What about using pfn_to_page(pfn + i)?

Thanks.
