This patch factor out madvise's core functionality so that upcoming
patch can reuse it without duplication. It shouldn't change any behavior.

There is a lot to unpack here. I really feel like this description
doesn't do the changes below any service. Really I feel like this
patch should probably be broken up over a few patches to make it
easier to review.

You have the moving of the function form the syscall madvise to the
function madvise_common. Then you have various function arguments that
are being added throughout.

Also this patchset needs to be rebased. It looks like there is already
a patch that is making madvise accessible:

Is this the only spot in this function that uses the task? If so why
bother with adding the argument above and not just call private->task
instead of current?

Is there any specific reason for adding the task in the middle of the
list of arguments instead of just placing it at the end? It makes it a
bit harder to review when arguments are added in the middle of the
argument list, or at least that is my opinion.

Okay so we were adding a task_struct pointer as an argument up to this
point and now we are switching to adding an mm_struct pointer here. I
would split these two off as separate patches and explain in the patch
description why you are doing that instead of just passing the task
here as well and then accessing task->mm.

Here you added both task and mm. Is ti truly necessary to have both?
Would it be possible to make use of either task->mm or mm->owner in
order to make it so that you only had to carry one of these?

So I would save this piece and move it to a separate patch. All of the
noise from the comment move would be greatly reduced and make it
easier to review the rest of this.

Okay so the rest of this is just more of the task/mm being added as
separate arguments.

Once I read up below, yes, I agree with you. I will try to make it
more clear as you suggested.

I just wanted to check target process signal initially but afterwards
realized we need to check caller process as well as target's one.
Anyway, it would be more clear not to handle it in this patchset to make
it "non-behavior change" for easier review.

Personally, I prefer top-down hierarchy list from bigger one to smaller.
I have thought it's popular way for code strucdturing(but I am only one
person to agree on it ;-)) for consistency and easy to think.
If we add back to the list for new arguments, it would hurt it, which
is my concern.

Good point. I guess task would be enough to pass mm_struct. I will look
into that.
