Subject[PATCH v1 02/15] iov_iter: add helper to test if an iter would use GUP
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

Add an helper to test if call to iov_iter_get_pages*() with a given
iter would result in calls to GUP (get_user_pages*()). We want to
track differently page reference if they are coming from GUP and thus
we need to know when GUP is use for a given iter.
