I think that compound page accounting and combined altmap accounting
makes this difficult to read, and I think the compound page case
deserves it's own first class loop rather than reusing
vmemmap_populate_basepages(). With the suggestion to drop altmap
support I'd expect a vmmemap_populate_compound that takes a compound
page size and goes the right think with respect to mapping all the
tail pages to the same pfn.

I think that compound page accounting and combined altmap accounting
makes this difficult to read, and I think the compound page case
deserves it's own first class loop rather than reusing
vmemmap_populate_basepages(). With the suggestion to drop altmap
support I'd expect a vmmemap_populate_compound that takes a compound
page size and goes the right think with respect to mapping all the
tail pages to the same pfn.
