Well yes and no, if the device driver is first to trigger a page fault on some
memory then it can decide to directly allocate device memory. But usual CPU page
fault would not trigger allocation of device memory. A new mechanism can be added
to achieve that if that make sense but for my main target (x86/pcie) it does not.

It is hmm_pfn_t to pfn value as an unsigned long. The memory the pfn
points to can be anything (regular system memory, device memory, ...).

hmm_pfn_t is just a pfn with a set of flags.
