Subject[PATCH] mm: fixup get_user_pages* comments
Date
In the previous round of get_user_pages* changes comments attached to
__get_user_pages_unlocked() and get_user_pages_unlocked() were rendered
incorrect, this patch corrects them.

In addition the get_user_pages_unlocked() comment seems to have already been
outdated as it referred to tsk, mm parameters which were removed in c12d2da5
("mm/gup: Remove the macro overload API migration helpers from the get_user*()
APIs"), this patch fixes this also.
