Subject[PATCH 0/5] Do not request a pointer kaddr when not required
Date
From: Huaisheng Ye <yehs1@lenovo.com>

Some functions within fs/dax and dax/super don't need to get kaddr from
direct_access. Assigning NULL to kaddr to ->direct_access() is more
straightforward and simple than offering a useless local pointer.

So all direct_access() need to check the validity of second rank pointer
kaddr for NULL assignment. If kaddr equals to NULL, it doesn't need to
calculate its value.

* This series are supplement to [PATCH v2 00/14]mm: Asynchronous +
multithreaded memmap init for ZONE_DEVICE. [1]
