Subject[PATCHSET v3 0/4] pagemap: make useable for non-privilege users
This patchset makes pagemap useable again in the safe way. It adds bit
'map-exlusive' which is set if page is mapped only here and restores
access for non-privileged users but hides pfn from them.

Last patch removes page-shift bits and completes migration to the new
pagemap format: flags soft-dirty and mmap-exlusive are available only
in the new format.

v3: check permissions in ->open


Konstantin Khlebnikov (4):
pagemap: check permissions and capabilities at open time
pagemap: add mmap-exclusive bit for marking pages mapped only here
pagemap: hide physical addresses from non-privileged users
pagemap: switch to the new format and do some cleanup
