Looking up the memory block and grabbing the altmap from there is a bit

Why can't we do that when adding the altmap? Will the hypervisor scream at

calling __arch_set_page_nodat() before making memory block accessible
will lead to crash. Hence, we think this is the only safe location to
place it.

... would we want to communicate any altmap start+size via the memory
notifier instead?

Passing start, size  of memory range via memory notifier looks correct
approach to me, as we try to make the specified range accessible.

If we want to pass altmap size (nr_vmemmap_pages), then we might need a
new field in struct memory_notify, which would prevent access of
memory_block->altmap->free in the notifier.

Do you want to take this approach instead?

If yes, Then I could add a new field nr_vmemmap_pages in struct
memory_notify and place it in PATCH : introduce

Yes, see my other mail. That's probably cleanest!
