Hi Ira,

This is for your tree. I'm dropping the RFC because this aspect is
starting to firm up pretty well.

I've moved FOLL_PIN inside the vaddr_pin_*() routines, and moved
FOLL_LONGTERM outside, based on our recent discussions. This is
documented pretty well within the patches.

Note that there are a lot of references in comments and commit
logs, to vaddr_pin_pages(). We'll want to catch all of those if
we rename that. I am pushing pretty hard to rename it to
vaddr_pin_user_pages().

v1 of this may be found here:
https://lore.kernel.org/r/20190812015044.26176-1-jhubbard@nvidia.com

For your vaddr_pin_pages() and vaddr_unpin_pages().
Just merge it into wherever it goes please. Didn't want to
cause merge problems so it's a separate patch-let.

As explained in the newly added documentation for FOLL_PIN and
FOLL_LONGTERM, in every case where vaddr_pin_pages() is required,
FOLL_PIN must be set. That reason, plus a desire to keep FOLL_PIN
an internal (to get_user_pages() and follow_page()) detail, is why
vaddr_pin_pages() sets FOLL_PIN.

FOLL_LONGTERM, on the other hand, in only set in *some* cases, but
not all. For that reason, this patch moves the setting of FOLL_LONGTERM
out to the caller.

Also add fairly extensive documentation of the meaning and use
of both FOLL_PIN and FOLL_LONGTERM.

Thanks to Jan Kara and Vlastimil Babka for explaining the 4 cases
in this documentation. (I've reworded it and expanded on it slightly.)

The motivation behind moving away from "bare" get_user_pages() calls
is described in more detail in commit fc1d8e7cca2d
("mm: introduce put_user_page*(), placeholder versions").

vaddr_pin_user_pages_remote() is the "vaddr_pin_pages" corresponding
variant to get_user_pages_remote(), except that:
   a) it sets FOLL_PIN, and
   b) it can handle FOLL_LONGTERM (and the associated vaddr_pin arg).

Change process_vm_rw_single_vec() to invoke the new function.

I am really sorry about this...

I think it is fine to pull these in...  There are some nits which are wrong but
I think with the XDP complication and Daves' objection I think the vaddr_pin
information is going to need reworking.  So the documentation there is probably
wrong.  But until we know what it is going to be we should just take this.

Do you have a branch with this on it?

The patches don't seem to apply.  Looks like they got corrupted somewhere...

:-/

Thanks,
Ira

Sure, I was thinking the same thing: FOLL_PIN is clearing up, but vaddr_pin_pages() 
is still under heavy discussion.

Yes, it's on: git@github.com:johnhubbard/linux.git , branch: vaddr_FOLL_PIN_next

Lately I'm trying out .nvidia.com outgoing servers for git-send-email, so I'm 
still nervous about potential email-based patch problems. I suspect, though,
that it's really just a "must be on exactly the right commit in order to apply"
situation. Please let me know, so I can make any corrections necessary on this end.
