This is pretty easy to do with HMM:

unsigned long hmm_page_to_phys_pfn(struct page *page)
struct hmm_devmem *devmem;
unsigned long ppfn;

/* Sanity test maybe BUG_ON() */
if (!is_device_private_page(page))
return -1UL;

devmem = page->pgmap->data;
ppfn = page_to_page(page) - devmem->pfn_first;
return ppfn + devmem->device_phys_base_pfn;

Note that last field does not exist in today HMM because i did not need
such helper so far but this can be added.
