So I'm wondering: __page_state_change() wants a physical address and
you're reading it out from the PTE here.

Why not do

__pa(address & PAGE_MASK);

like it is usually done?

And those macros are right there at the top of ident_map_64.c with an
explanation that we're ident-mapped here so pa == va...
