TBH, I dislike (generic) pfn_is_memory(). It feels like we're mixing 
concepts. NOMAP memory vs !NOMAP memory; even NOMAP is some kind of 
memory after all. pfn_is_map_memory() would be more expressive, although 
still sub-optimal.

We'd actually want some kind of arm64-specific pfn_is_system_memory() or 
the inverse pfn_is_device_memory() -- to be improved.
