I checked out zstd.c and one of the issues there is the way that the input
workspace is mapped page by page while iterating those pages.

This got me thinking about what Willy said at LSFmm concerning something like
kmap_local_range(). Mapping more than 1 page at a time could save some
unmap/remap of output pages required for kmap_local_page() ordering.

Unfortunately, I think the length of the input is probably to long in many
cases. And some remapping may still be required.

As an aside, Willy, I'm thinking that a kmap_local_range() should return a
folio in some way. Would you agree?
