Hi Bharath,

If you like, I could re-post your patch here, modified slightly, as part of
the next version of the miscellaneous call site conversion series [1].

As part of that, we should change this to use put_user_pages_dirty_lock()
(see below).

This would change to:
put_user_pages_dirty_lock(&acd->user_pages[i], 1, true);


...and we'd add this blurb (this time with CH's name spelled properly) to
the commit description:

Note that this effectively changes the code's behavior in
qp_release_pages(): it now ultimately calls set_page_dirty_lock(),
instead of set_page_dirty(). This is probably more accurate.

As Christoph Hellwig put it, "set_page_dirty() is only safe if we are
dealing with a file backed page where we have reference on the inode it
hangs off." [1]

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/r/20190723153640.GB720@lst.de

Also, future: I don't know the driver well enough to say, but maybe "true"
could be replaced by "acd->ldev->dir == DMA_FROM_DEVICE", there, but that
would be a separate patch.
