Previously, we noticed the one rpma example was failed[1] since 36f30e486d,
where it will use ODP feature to do RDMA WRITE between fsdax files.

After digging into the code, we found hmm_vma_handle_pte() will still
return EFAULT even though all the its requesting flags has been
fulfilled. That's because a DAX page will be marked as
(_PAGE_SPECIAL | PAGE_DEVMAP) by pte_mkdevmap().

You need to add a

I liked your ealier version better where this was added to the
pte_special test - logically this is about disambiguating the
pte_special and the devmap case as they are different things.

Yes, I think that is much more logical.  Also please capitalize the
first word in multi-line comments.
