This just depends on whether or not the kernel is running out of the linear
mapping or not. On arm64, we use the vmalloc area for the kernel image and
so virt_to_page() won't work, just like it won't work for modules on other
architectures.

How are module addresses handled by mem_cgroup_from_obj()?

For this specific issue, can you use lm_alias to get a virtual address
suitable for virt_to_page()? My question about modules still applies though.
