Subject: [PATCH] mm/gup.c: Make follow_page_mask static
Date: Sat, 11 May 2019 00:38:32 +0530
Message-ID: <20190510190831.GA4061@bharath12345-Inspiron-5559> (raw)

follow_page_mask is only used in gup.c, make it static.

Tested by compiling and booting. Grepped the source for
"follow_page_mask" to be sure it is not used else where.
