Why I suggest is handle_mm_fault counts PGFAULT in system.
If we want to get minor fault count in system, we have to calculate
(PGFAULT - PGMAJFAULT).

But we don't count it as either major or minor in this case and GUP case
I doubt it, then I see GUP already handled it tsk->[maj|min]flt.
Although it isn't my point, I thought break_ksm also have to count it
like GUP at least.

Okay. It's not real problem. I found just while I review the code.
I have no objection in your opinion.
But I think it would be better to have a consistency PGFAULT and PGMAJFAULT.
