Hi Andrew,

As requested, here is a resend of the devm_memremap_pages() fixups.
Please consider for 4.18.

---

As ZONE_DEVICE continues to attract new users, it is imperative to keep
all users consolidated on devm_memremap_pages() as the interface for
create "device pages".

The devm_memremap_pages() implementation was recently reworked to make
it more generic for arbitrary users, like the proposed peer-to-peer
PCI-E enabling. HMM pre-dated this rework and opted to duplicate
devm_memremap_pages() as hmm_devmem_pages_create().

Rework hmm to be a consumer of devm_memremap_pages() directly and fix up
the licensing on the exports given the deep dependencies and exposure of
core mm internals.

With the exports of devm_memremap_pages() and hmm fixed up we can fix
the regression of inadvertently making put_page() have EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
dependencies, which breaks consumers like OpenAFS.

The series was tested against v4.18-rc2.
