You're adding a parameter indirectly by adding it to the structure.
Maybe "provide a way to specify the pgprot value explicitly to
arch_add_memory()"

"page table protection" ?

... maybe better "if (WARN_ON_ONCE(...))"

I think we usually use spaces like

= { .pgprot = PAGE_KERNEL };

t480s: ~/git/linux virtio-mem-v1 $ git grep "= {\." | wc -l

The !arch code looks good to me (besides I would prefer "params" instead
of "modifiers").
