Not true. PFN 0 is valid. Why do you think pfn 0 is invalid?

I don't get it. If zs_malloc return 0, it means FAILED. 
How can user pass it in obj_location_to_handle?

Although you are worry that someone might use the function in future,
Just enough with below.

        BUG_ON(!page);

The assertion isn't effecitve so we don't need that.
