I didn't really follow what you mean by "synchronous" here, although the
explanation about pmds makes sense so it's probably just terminology.

That's kind of the problem. The patch itself looks correct to me however as
mentioned it is mostly reverting a previous cleanup and it's hard to tell why
that's justified without the subsequent patches. Perhaps it makes the usage of
zap_details a bit clearer, but a comment also would with less code.

I know you want to try and shrink the uffd-wp series but I think this patch
might be easier to review if it was included as part of that series.
