It seems redundant to me to have the kill pointer both passed in as an
argument and passed in as part of pgmap... Why not just expect the user
to set it in the *pgmap that's passed in just like we expect ref to be
set ahead of time?

Another thought (that may be too forward looking) is to pass the
dev_pagemap struct to the kill function instead of the reference. That
way, if some future user wants to do something extra on kill they can
use container_of() to get extra context to work with.

Thanks,

Logan
