Subject[PATCH 63/91] export __get_user_pages_fast() function
2.6.27-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
commit 45888a0c6edc305495b6bd72a30e66bc40b324c6 upstream.

Backport for stable kernel v2.6.32.y to v2.6.36.y.

Needed for next patch:

oprofile, x86: Fix nmi-unsafe callgraph support

This function is used by KVM to pin process's page in the atomic context.

Define the 'weak' function to avoid other architecture not support it
