This is an externally visible function; why not add the second '*' and
make this kernel-doc?

Why do you need the i_pages lock to do this?  is the rcu_read_lock()
insufficient?  For that matter, why use the xas functions?  Why not
simply:

	void *entry = xa_load(&mapping->i_pages, index);
	return dax_to_pfn(entry);

Looking at it more though, how do you know this is a PFN entry?
It could be locked, for example.  Or the zero page, or empty.

But I think this is unnecessary; why not just pass the PFN into
mf_dax_kill_procs?
