Subject[PATCH v2 11/14] gup: add FOLL_HINT_BULK, FAULT_FLAG_UNCACHED
Date
Add FOLL_HINT_BULK, which users of get_user_pages(), and
pin_user_pages() can use to signal that this call is one of
many allowing get_user_pages() to optimize accordingly.

Also add FAULT_FLAG_UNCACHED, which translates to the
same idea for the fault path.

As the second flag suggests, the intent for both is to hint the
use of an uncached path if one is available.
