The patch series is on top of v5.1-rc6-mmotm-2019-04-25-16-30.
hmm_vma_fault() is defined there and in your hmm-5.2-v3 branch as
a backward compatibility transition function in include/linux/hmm.h.
So I agree the new API is to use hmm_range_register(), etc.
This is intended to cover the transition period.
Note that hmm_vma_fault() is being called from
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau_svm.c in both trees.
