Subject[PATCH 09/36] HMM: add mm page table iterator helpers.
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

Because inside the mmu_notifier callback we do not have access to the
vma nor do we know which lock we are holding (the mmap semaphore or
the i_mmap_lock) we can not rely on the regular page table walk (nor
do we want as we have to be carefull to not split huge page).

So this patch introduce an helper to iterate of the cpu page table
content in an efficient way for the situation we are in. Which is we
know that none of the page table entry might vanish from below us
and thus it is safe to walk the page table.

The only added value of the iterator is that it keeps the page table
entry level map accross call which fit well with the HMM mirror page
table update code.
