Previouly drivers have their own way of mapping range of
kernel pages/memory into user vma and this was done by
invoking vm_insert_page() within a loop.

As this pattern is common across different drivers, it can
be generalized by creating new functions and use it across
the drivers.

vm_insert_range() is the API which could be used to mapped
kernel memory/pages in drivers which has considered vm_pgoff

vm_insert_range_buggy() is the API which could be used to map
range of kernel memory/pages in drivers which has not considered
vm_pgoff. vm_pgoff is passed default as 0 for those drivers.

We _could_ then at a later "fix" these drivers which are using
vm_insert_range_buggy() to behave according to the normal vm_pgoff
offsetting simply by removing the _buggy suffix on the function
name and if that causes regressions, it gives us an easy way to revert.

The elaborate description you've added to __vm_insert_range() is better put
here, as this is the "public" function.

Here I'd add something like:

Similar to vm_insert_range(), except that it explicitly sets @vm_pgoff to
0. This function is intended for the drivers that did not consider
@vm_pgoff.

Ok, will add it in v3. Which means __vm_insert_range() still needs a short
description ?

hmm, I'm missing a changelog here between v1 and v2.
Nevertheless I managed to test v1 on Rockchip hardware
and display is still working, including talking to Lima via prime.

So if there aren't any big changes for v2, on Rockchip

Change log is available in [0/9].
Patch [1/9] & [4/9] have no changes between v1 -> v2.

For static functions, I prefer to leave off the second '*', ie make it
formatted like a docbook comment, but not be processed like a docbook
comment.  That avoids cluttering the html with descriptions of internal
functions that people can't actually call.

Rather than using `num', you should use @num.

But vm_pgoff isn't a parameter, so it's misleading to format it as such.

I don't think we should call it 'buggy'.  'zero' would make more sense
as a suffix.

Given how this interface has evolved, I'm no longer sure than
'vm_insert_range' makes sense as the name for it.  Is it perhaps
'vm_map_object' or 'vm_map_pages'?

suffix can be *zero or zero_offset* whichever suits better.

I prefer vm_map_pages. Considering it, both the interface name can be changed
to *vm_insert_range -> vm_map_pages* and *vm_insert_range_buggy ->
vm_map_pages_{zero/zero_offset}.

As this is only change in interface name and rest of code remain same
shall I post it in v3 ( with additional change log mentioned about interface
name changed) ?

or,

It will be a new patch series ( with carry forward all the Reviewed-by
/ Tested-by on
vm_insert_range/ vm_insert_range_buggy ) ?
