You should also take into account xen_add_to_physmap_batch (or are you
planning to issue an hypercall for every single MMIO page that you want
to map?), but anyway the idx(s) field is there in both structs.

IMHO, I'm not sure why we should restrict this to 1:1 (although I admit
this is going to be the common case). Didn't we are that we are going to
allow non 1:1 mapping of MMIO regions?

If you want you can check in the hypercall handler that idxs[i] ==
gpfns[i], and return -EOPNOTSUPP if they don't match, but I still don't
see why this should be restricted to 1:1 mappings.
