Subject[PATCH] Add notification of page becoming writable to VMA ops [try #2]
Date

The attached patch adds a new VMA operation to notify a filesystem or other
driver about the MMU generating a fault because userspace attempted to write
to a page mapped through a read-only PTE.

This facility permits the filesystem or driver to:

(*) Implement storage allocation/reservation on attempted write, and so to
deal with problems such as ENOSPC more gracefully (perhaps by generating
SIGBUS).

(*) Delay making the page writable until the contents have been written to a
backing cache. This is useful for NFS/AFS when using FS-Cache/CacheFS.
It permits the filesystem to have some guarantee about the state of the
cache.
