Is it worth asserting that the page was found:

	VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!page || xa_is_value(page), page);

? Or is that overkill here?

The above was surprising, until I saw the other thread with Dave and you.
I was reviewing this patchset in order to have a chance at understanding the 
follow-on patchset ("Large pages in the page cache"), and it seems like that
feature has a solid head start here. :)
