It may not be worth blocking on this, so

  Acked-by: Thomas Zimmermann <tzimmermann at suse.de>

But I still think it's not a good interface because it exposes internal
details.

Please consider another idea: how about splitting off the ttm_bo_get()
and vma-flags setup of ttm_fbdev_mmap() into a separate function, like this:

void ttm_bo_mmap_refed(vma, bo)
{
	ttm_bo_get(bo)
	ttm_bo_mmap_vma_setup(vma);
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL(ttm_bo_mmap_refed)

int ttm_fbdev_mmap(vma, bo)
{
        if (vma->vm_pgoff != 0)
                return -EACCES;
	ttm_bo_mmap_refed(vma, bo);
	return 0;
}

That would allow to keep _vma_setup() an internal function.

ttm_fbdev_mmap() sounds like it is only for fbdev and the only user is
amdgpu. Can it be moved out of ttm entirely?

Best regards
Thomas
