Right...

Seems to be true, indeed.

pte_hole() is for checking a range and we are calling it for single page,
isnt't that causing larger overhead in the end? There's xarray involved, so
maybe Matthew will know best.

I don't think this is true, 'unlikely(IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_SHMEM))' will be a
compile-time constant false and shortcut the rest of the 'if' evaluation
thus there will be no page check? Or I misunderstood.
