NACK

Looking at MEMPOOL_F_NO_IOVA_CONTIG description I don't
understand why the patch is necessary at all. So, I'd like to
know more. Exact conditions, IOVA mode, hugepage sizes,
mempool flags and how it is populated.

The last argument is the callback opaque value. mempool_add_elem()
does not use the opaque. But it is incorrect to use it for other purposes
and require it to be memzone.

Why two variables are combined into one here? It is unrelated change.

What I don't like here is that it makes one memory chunk insufficient
to populate all objects. I.e. we calculated memory chunk size required,
but skipped some object. May be it is not a problem, but breaks the
logic existing in the code.
