Here is my effort to make rdma use this, it removes a lot of ugly code:

https://github.com/jgunthorpe/linux/commits/rdma_addr_space

Still needs some more detailed testing.

This gives an option to detect vfio VMAs by checking

   if (vma->vm_file &&
       file_inode(vma->vm_file) &&
       file_inode(vma->vm_file)->i_sb->s_type == vfio_fs_type)

And all vfio VMA's can have some consistent vm_private_data, or at
worst a consistent extended vm operations struct.
