This is roughly what I was expecting, except I don't see exactly what
the p2p_map and p2p_unmap callbacks are for. The importing driver should
see p2pdma/hmm struct pages and use the appropriate function to map
them. It shouldn't be the responsibility of the exporting driver to
implement the mapping. And I don't think we should have 'special' vma's
for this (though we may need something to ensure we don't get mapping
requests mixed with different types of pages...).

I also figured there'd be a fault version of p2p_ioremap_device_memory()
for when you are mapping P2P memory and you want to assign the pages
lazily. Though, this can come later when someone wants to implement that.
