It seems that we are not on the same page. I am thinking that this fix 
should also work for the future folio. And your idea is based on the 
current implementation.

Perhaps it is not a good time to discuss folio currently. Let me focus 
on the current implementation.

In this commit, if the page size is not equal to PAGE_SIZE, it will pop 
out warning then exit. So "rxe_info_mr" should be changed to rxe_warning_mr?

In fact, I like to remove the page size assignment in rxe, that is, 
partly reverting the commit 325a7eb85199 ("RDMA/rxe: Cleanup page 
variables in rxe_mr.c"). But it seems that Jason did not like this.
I no longer insist on this.

I am not sure whether Jason, Leon, Bob and you have better solution to 
this problem or not.

If not, this commit can fix this problem if no better solution.
