@altmap is stored in a dev_pagemap, but it will be repurposed for

dev_pagemap backend altmaps.
I was going to say, just pass the pgmap and lookup the altmap from
pgmap, but Oscar added a use case for altmap independent of pgmap. So
you might refresh this commit message to clarify why passing pgmap by
itself is not sufficient.
Other than that, looks good.
