Yes, that is what I had in mind.

One thought I had for a future optimization is that we could look at
reducing the count by 1 so that we could essentially combine the
non-frag and frag cases.Then instead of testing for 1 we would test
for 0 at thee start of the function and test for < 0 to decide if we
want to free it or not instead of testing for 0. With that we can
essentially reduce the calls to the WARN_ON since we should only have
one case where we actually return a value < 0, and we can then check
to see if we overshot -1 which would be the WARN_ON case.

With that a value of 0 instead of 1 would indicate page frag is not in
use for the page *AND/OR* that the page has reached the state where
there are no other frags present so the page can be recycled. In
effect it would allow us to mix page frags and no frags within the
same pool. The added bonus would be we could get rid of the check for
PP_FLAG_PAGE_FRAG flag check in the __page_pool_put_page function and
replace it with a check for PAGE_POOL_DMA_USE_PP_FRAG_COUNT since we
cannot read frag_count in that case.
