Apologies for the delay in responding.

The Subject line of this patch is confusing, if you want to know if a
pfn is in persistent memory the only mechanism for that is:

region_intersects(addr, length, IORESOURCE_MEM, IORES_DESC_PERSISTENT_MEMORY)

...there is otherwise nothing pmem specific about the dev_pagemap
infrastructure. Yes, pmem is the primary user, but it is also used for
mapping "soft-reserved" memory (See: the EFI_MEMORY_SP) attribute, and
other users.

Can you clarify the intent? I am missing some context.
