Subject[PATCH v2 3/6] mm: introduce zone_gup_lock, for dma-pinned pages
Date
From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

The page->dma_pinned_flags and _count fields require
lock protection. A lock at approximately the granularity
of the zone_lru_lock is called for, but adding to the
locking contention of zone_lru_lock is undesirable,
because that is a pre-existing hot spot. Fortunately,
these new dma_pinned_* fields can use an independent
lock, so this patch creates an entirely new lock, right
next to the zone_lru_lock.

Why "zone_gup_lock"?

Most of the naming refers to "DMA-pinned pages", but
"zone DMA lock" has other meanings already, so this is
called zone_gup_lock instead. The "dma pinning" is a result
of get_user_pages (gup) being called, so the name still
helps explain its use.
