That language confused me.  I thought you were talking about a separate
issue, whereby NVDIMMs which are not mapped (probably due to some errors
with the dimms themselves) would get an index of 0.  But upon
re-reading, I think you just meant that the virtual media is not mapped
via a region mapping structure.

The change looks good, but can you add a comment to the code?  With
that, you can add my:
