I don't think this check is correct. You only want the the ops null check
or MEMORY_DEVICE_PRIVATE as well now, i.e.:

if (pgmap->type == MEMORY_DEVICE_PRIVATE &&
(!pgmap->ops || !pgmap->ops->page_free)) {

This adds a > 80 char line. But that whole flow of the function seems
rather odd now.

Why can't we do:

if (count == 0) {
__put_page(page);
} else if (is_device_private_page(page)) {
__ClearPageActive(page);
__ClearPageWaiters(page);

mem_cgroup_uncharge(page);
page->mapping = NULL;
page->pgmap->ops->page_free(page);
} else {
wake_up_var(&page->_refcount);
}

(except for the fact that I don't get the point of calling __put_page
on a refcount of zero, but that is separate from this patch).
