Thanks for your patch, merged to drm-misc-next for 5.13.

While I have an expert here, does this mean that for a VM_PFNMAP we could
pull of the same trick without any struct page backing, assuming we pulle
the per-page dirty state into some tracking of our own?

I'm asking since for DRM drivers we currently have a fairly awkward
situation with a bounce buffer in system memory going on that we copy out
of, because we can't directly use the gpu buffers. If we can track
directly in the gpu buffers, maybe even as some kind of overlay over the
vma, we could avoid that copy.

Otoh no one cares about fbcon performance, so *shrug*.

Cheers, Daniel
