Technicaly we can have an interval starting at zero.

I'd write it more like

if (mni->updated_start == mni->updated_end)
    insert
else
    remove

ie an empty interval can't get a notification so it should be removed
from the tree.

I also like the name 'updated' better than deferred, it is a bit
clearer..

Adding release should it's own patch.

So why do we need this? You can't call hmm_range_fault from a
notifier. You just can't.

So there should be no reason to create an interval from the notifier,
do it from where you call hmm_range_fault, and it must be safe to
obtain the mmap_sem from that thread.

A 'update' should probably be the same as insert, it doesn't
necessarily take effect until mmu_interval_read_begin(), so nothing
contingent on release.

As before, I'm not sure what to do with this. We need an in-kernel
user for new apis, and I don't see a reason to make this more
complicated for a test program. 

The test program should match one of the existing driver flows, so use
the page table like scheme from ODP or the fixed lifetime scheme from
AMDGPU/ODP
