Hi,

IMO, it would be better to have a pfn_to_folio(), which can save the
redundant page_folio() call in the current case.

But this is not related to the current patch, maybe it can be a
separate optimization patch.

Do we currently have a scenario where we need to use skew mapped folios?
Maybe it can be used in pte-mapped THP? Hmm, I have no idea.

We can't use folio_nr_pages() here, because for PMD_SIZE we only need
one entry instead of the PTRS_PER_PTE entries returned by
folio_nr_pages().
