Subject: [PATCH 2/4] mm: introduce put_user_page(), placeholder version
Date: Thu, 27 Sep 2018 22:39:48 -0700
Message-ID: <20180928053949.5381-4-jhubbard@nvidia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180928053949.5381-1-jhubbard@nvidia.com>

From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

Introduces put_user_page(), which simply calls put_page().
This provides a way to update all get_user_pages*() callers,
so that they call put_user_page(), instead of put_page().

Also adds release_user_pages(), a drop-in replacement for
release_pages(). This is intended to be easily grep-able,
for later performance improvements, since release_user_pages
is not batched like release_pages() is, and is significantly
slower.

Also: rename goldfish_pipe.c's release_user_pages(), in order
to avoid a naming conflict with the new external function of
the same name.

This prepares for eventually fixing the problem described
in [1], and is following a plan listed in [2].

[2] https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180709080554.21931-1-jhubbard@nvidia.com
    Proposed steps for fixing get_user_pages() + DMA problems.
