Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] mm: introduce get_user_pages_longterm
From
Date
Until there is a solution to the dma-to-dax vs truncate problem it is
not safe to allow long standing memory registrations against
filesytem-dax vmas. Device-dax vmas do not have this problem and are
explicitly allowed.

This is temporary until a "memory registration with layout-lease"
mechanism can be implemented for the affected sub-systems (RDMA and
V4L2).

Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org>
Fixes: 3565fce3a659 ("mm, x86: get_user_pages() for dax mappings")
Suggested-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>
