OK, thanks for explaining! Artemy, while you're here, any thoughts about the
release_pages, and the change of the starting point, from the other part of the
patch:

@@ -684,9 +677,11 @@ int ib_umem_odp_map_dma_pages(struct ib_umem_odp *umem_odp,
u64 user_virt,
mutex_unlock(&umem_odp->umem_mutex);

if (ret < 0) {
- /* Release left over pages when handling errors. */
- for (++j; j < npages; ++j)
- put_page(local_page_list[j]);
+ /*
+ * Release pages, starting at the the first page
+ * that experienced an error.
+ */
+ release_pages(&local_page_list[j], npages - j);
break;
}
}

?

thanks,
