I rebased to next-20191016. And yes, we will move pfn_to_online_page()
into soft offline code. It seems that we can also move pfn_valid(),
but is simply moving like below good enough for you?

if (is_zone_device_page(page)) {
pr_debug_ratelimited("soft_offline: %#lx page is device page\n",

Or we might have an option to do as memory_failure() does like below:

int memory_failure(unsigned long pfn, int flags)
p = pfn_to_online_page(pfn);
if (!p) {
if (pfn_valid(pfn)) {
pgmap = get_dev_pagemap(pfn, NULL);
if (pgmap)
return memory_failure_dev_pagemap(pfn, flags,
pr_err("Memory failure: %#lx: memory outside kernel control\n",
return -ENXIO;
