This is something we can explore latter on.

Good catch i should make that conditional on DEVICE_PUBLIC or whatever
the name endup to be. I will make sure i test without DEVICE_PRIVATE
config before posting again.

pte_mkdevmap() is not define if ZONE_DEVICE is not enabled hence
i had to protect this with #if/#endif to avoid build error.
