firstpage is rather misleading.
As you know, we use firstpage term for real firstpage of zspage but
in case of zs_copy_map_object, it could be a middle page of zspage.
So I would like to use "page" instead of firstpage.

If I understand your intention correctly, you want to prevent calling
this function on non-atomic context. Right?
Please write down description more clearly as point of view what's happen
if we didn't.

Ditto firstpage.

Otherwise, Looks good to me.
