Bleh. I hate the way we handle these currently.

We haven't needed a pfn_to_folio() yet, but perhaps we should have one?

Related, how should we store migration entries for multi-order folios
in the page tables? We can either encode the individual page in
question, or we can encode the folio. Do we need to support folios
being mapped askew (ie unaligned), or will folios always be mapped
aligned?

It seems like a shame to calculate folio_size() only to turn it into a
number of pages. Don't you want to just use:

ncontig = folio_nr_pages(folio);
