I probably could, but I don't think that necessarily improves things.
The reason is that that would cause the helper to get called even if the
driver doesn't support reserved regions. That's likely harmless because
in that case the list of regions passed to it would be empty. However, I
think the current way to do this, where we have to implement both hooks
for ->get_resv_regions() and ->put_resv_regions() is nicely symmetric.
