Virtual and physical page address

Hello everyone,

I am attempting to dump the page table of a process in terms of virtual
addresses and the corresponding physical addresses. I am looking for
information whether the pointers I am using are correct for this purpose:

1. Can I say that pte_page(pte_t) returns the virtual address of the page
that the PTE points at?

2. can I say that page_to_phys(struct page) returns the physical address of
that same entry?

Thank you,
