Please don't call this a subsystem. 'sound' and 'mm' are subsystems, this is just some
shared code.

Even though you've baked the get_safe_page() calls into trans_pgd_map_page()?

If this thing is going to be exposed, its name should reflect that its creating a set of
page tables, to map a single page.

A function called 'map_page' with this prototype should 'obviously' map @page at @dst_addr
in @trans_pgd using the provided @pgprot... but it doesn't.

This is what 'create' was doing in the old name, if that wasn't obvious, its because
naming things is hard!
| trans_create_single_page_mapping()?

(might be too verbose)

I think this bites you in patch 8, where you 'generalise' this.

Could you fix the spelling of maintenance as git thinks you've moved it?
