Oooh, that I didn't know.. That is kind of horrible to have a PMD
pointing at an order 0 page only in this one special case.

Still, I think it would be easier to teach record_subpages() that a
PMD doesn't necessarily point to a high order page, eg do something
like I suggested for the SGL where it extracts the page order and
iterates over the contiguous range of pfns.

This way it can remain general with no particularly special path for
devmap or a special PGMAP_COMPOUND check here.
