Logan had similar feedback, and now the chorus is getting louder. I
personally like how I can do this with grep:

drivers/dax/pmem.c:114: addr = devm_memremap_pages(dev,
&dax_pmem->pgmap, dax_pmem_percpu_kill);
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c:411: addr =
devm_memremap_pages(dev, &pmem->pgmap,
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c-412- pmem_freeze_queue);
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c:425: addr =
devm_memremap_pages(dev, &pmem->pgmap,
drivers/nvdimm/pmem.c-426- pmem_freeze_queue);
mm/hmm.c:1059: result = devm_memremap_pages(devmem->device, &devmem->pagemap,
mm/hmm.c-1060- hmm_devmem_ref_kill);
mm/hmm.c:1113: result = devm_memremap_pages(devmem->device, &devmem->pagemap,
mm/hmm.c-1114- hmm_devmem_ref_kill);

...and see all of the kill() variants, but the redundancy will likely
continue to bother folks.

Thanks, I'll fix it up to drop the redundant arg.
