Subject[PATCH RFC 2/3] mm: Add support for exposing if dev_pagemap supports refcount pinning
From
Date
Add a means of exposing if a pagemap supports refcount pinning. I am doing
this to expose if a given pagemap has backing struct pages that will allow
for the reference count of the page to be incremented to lock the page
into place.

The KVM code already has several spots where it was trying to use a
pfn_valid check combined with a PageReserved check to determien if it could
take a reference on the page. I am adding this check so in the case of the
page having the reserved flag checked we can check the pagemap for the page
to determine if we might fall into the special DAX case.
