Almost: Generally no full stop in log messages please. And I think
the word "page" is redundant here. As rule of thumb: Log
messages should give as much as possible useful information (which
includes the requirement for distinct ones to be distinguishable in
resulting logs) with as little as possible verbosity.

For one what you say suggests that right now this is being done
for some (one?) IOMMU(s), which I don't see being the case. And
then what you say _still_ doesn't say _why_ this is now needed all
of the sudden. If, in the course of doing your re-work here, you
find pre-existing issues with the code, please split the necessary
fixes out of your re-work and submit them separately with proper
explanations in their commit messages.

Directing the question back is not helpful: You should know better
than me why you had added a log message there in the first place.
And it is this "why" which is to judge about whether it should stay
there, move elsewhere, or get dropped altogether.

I don't think so, and I can only re-iterate: There can't be any error
here, so there's no error code to forward up the call tree. IOW the
"pg_maddr == 0" case simply means "nothing to do" here.

In such a case - how about asking the maintainers, who are your
colleagues? And that of course after having looked at the history
in an attempt to gain some understanding.

Well, you clearly can't ignore it.
