Although this interface is intended to be useful in a wide range of

subsystems, for example: to ensure that pagetables have been allocated
for a virtual address range, and to construct batched special
pagetable update requests to map I/O memory (in ioremap()).

This interface is great, and highly useful. But it doesn't seem to be able to work on native hardware, as it doesn't support large pages.

Ah, good point. I'll add that.
