This will break ZONE_DEVICE at least for HMM. While i think that
altmap -> ZONE_DEVICE (ie altmap imply ZONE_DEVICE) the reverse
is not true ie ZONE_DEVICE does not necessarily imply altmap. So
with the above changes you change the expected behavior. You do
need the zone to know if it is a ZONE_DEVICE. You could also lookup
one of the struct page but my understanding is that this is what
you want to avoid in the first place.

Cheers,
Jérôme
