Subject[PATCH v2 07/14] x86/clear_page: add clear_page_uncached()
Date
Expose the low-level uncached primitives (clear_page_movnt(),
clear_page_clzero()) as alternatives via clear_page_uncached().
Also fallback to clear_page(), if X86_FEATURE_MOVNT_SLOW is set
and the CPU does not have X86_FEATURE_CLZERO.

Both the uncached primitives use stores which are weakly ordered
with respect to other instructions accessing the memory hierarchy.
To ensure that callers don't mix accesses to different types of
address_spaces, annotate clear_user_page_uncached(), and
clear_page_uncached() as taking __incoherent pointers as arguments.

Also add clear_page_uncached_make_coherent() which provides the
necessary store fence to flush out the uncached regions.

Notes:
This patch adds the fallback definitions of clear_user_page_uncached()
etc in include/linux/mm.h which is likely not the right place for it.

I'm guessing these should be moved to include/asm-generic/page.h
(or maybe a new include/asm-generic/page_uncached.h) and for
architectures that do have arch/$arch/include/asm/page.h (which
seems like all of them), also replicate there?

Anyway, wanted to first check if that's the way to do it, before
doing that.
