I need this functionality as well for virtio_fs and posted a patch for
this.

Given this is an optimization which existing users can benefit from already,
this patch could probably be pushed upstream independently.

Should we unmap only those pages which fall in the range specified by caller.
Unmapping whole file seems to be less efficient.
