It is perfectly allowed to flush ordinary memory, persistence is
another matter entirely. Is this subroutine checking for flush,
or persistence? Its name is confusing and needs to be clarified.

Setting is_pmem is reasonable, but again, this is confusing with respect
to the region being flushable. In general, all memory is flushable,
provided the platform supports any kind of cache flush (i.e. all of them).
