It was my wrong understanding which create this issue. Sorry about it.
I though to change the return type of vm_insert_pfn_prot() to vm_fault_t
type directly along with the caller of vm_insert_pfn_prot(), but in a separate
patch.

But introducing vmf_insert_pfn_prot() is much simpler approach here.

Sorry for making things complex.
