dev_memremap_pages() is kind of an important interface for getting
device memory into kernel through ZONE_DEVICE. So it should actually
enforce all these checks. Also we should document these things clearly
above the function.

We dont have to do BUG_ON(), just a check that all expected flags are
in there, else fail the call. Now this function does not return any
value to be checked inside driver, in that case we can just do a error
message print and move on.
