I'm not sure we can afford to wait for page pins when handling page
poisoning. In an ideal world we should but... But I guess this is for
someone understanding memory poisoning better to judge.

Ouch, we definitely need something better here. Either reuse the
page_waitqueue() mechanism or create at least a global wait queue for this
(I don't expect too much contention on the waitqueue and even if there
eventually is, we can switch to page_waitqueue() when we find it). But
this is a no-go...

Hum, why do you do this for each page table this is mapped in? Also the
locking is IMHO going to hurt a lot and we need to avoid it.

What I think needs to happen is that in page_mkclean(), after you've
cleared all the page tables, you check PageDmaPinned() and wait if needed.
Page cannot be faulted in again as we hold page lock and so races with
concurrent GUP are fairly limited. So with some careful ordering & memory
barriers you should be able to get away without any locking. Ditto for the
unmap path...
