Subject[PATCH 00/19] pin_user_pages(): reduced-risk series for Linux 5.5

Here is a set of well-reviewed (expect for one patch), lower-risk items
that can go into Linux 5.5. The one patch that wasn't reviewed is the
powerpc conversion, and it's still at this point a no-op, because
tracking isn't yet activated.

This is based on linux-next: b9d3d01405061bb42358fe53f824e894a1922ced
("Add linux-next specific files for 20191122").

This is essentially a cut-down v8 of "mm/gup: track dma-pinned pages:
FOLL_PIN" [1], and with one of the VFIO patches split into two patches.
The idea here is to get this long list of "noise" checked into 5.5, so
that the actual, higher-risk "track FOLL_PIN pages" (which is deferred:
not part of this series) will be a much shorter patchset to review.

For the v4l2-core changes, I've left those here (instead of sending
them separately to the -media tree), in order to get the name change
done now (put_user_page --> unpin_user_page). However, I've added a Cc
stable, as recommended during the last round of reviews.

Here are the relevant notes from the original cover letter, edited to
match the current situation:

This is a prerequisite to tracking dma-pinned pages. That in turn is a
prerequisite to solving the larger problem of proper interactions
between file-backed pages, and [R]DMA activities, as discussed in [1],
[2], [3], and in a remarkable number of email threads since about
2017. :)

A new internal gup flag, FOLL_PIN is introduced, and thoroughly
documented in the last patch's Documentation/vm/pin_user_pages.rst.

I believe that this will provide a good starting point for doing the
layout lease work that Ira Weiny has been working on. That's because
these new wrapper functions provide a clean, constrained, systematically
named set of functionality that, again, is required in order to even
know if a page is "dma-pinned".

In contrast to earlier approaches, the page tracking can be
incrementally applied to the kernel call sites that, until now, have
been simply calling get_user_pages() ("gup"). In other words, opt-in by
changing from this:

get_user_pages() (sets FOLL_GET)

to this:
pin_user_pages() (sets FOLL_PIN)

Because there are interdependencies with FOLL_LONGTERM, a similar
conversion as for FOLL_PIN, was applied. The change was from this:

get_user_pages(FOLL_LONGTERM) (also sets FOLL_GET)

to this:
pin_longterm_pages() (sets FOLL_PIN | FOLL_LONGTERM)
