The devm_memremap_pages() facility is tightly integrated with the
kernel's memory hotplug functionality. It injects an altmap argument
deep into the architecture specific vmemmap implementation to allow
allocating from specific reserved pages, and it has Linux specific
assumptions about page structure reference counting relative to
get_user_pages() and get_user_pages_fast(). It was an oversight that
this was not marked EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL from the outset.
