Subject[PATCH v4 4/9] mm/mmu_notifier: pass down vma and reasons why mmu notifier is happening
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

CPU page table update can happens for many reasons, not only as a result
of a syscall (munmap(), mprotect(), mremap(), madvise(), ...) but also
as a result of kernel activities (memory compression, reclaim, migration,
...).

Users of mmu notifier API track changes to the CPU page table and take
specific action for them. While current API only provide range of virtual
address affected by the change, not why the changes is happening

This patch is just passing down the new informations by adding it to the
mmu_notifier_range structure.
