First thanks for the review, I've gone through and addressed everything you
mentioned, however this one is subtle.

The problem is the vmf->vma->vm_file access. Once we drop the mmap_sem we can
no longer safely go into vmf->vma, so I'd have to fix all the page_mkwrite()'s
to not touch vma, and add a vmf->fpin instead to mess with. Plus I didn't want
to miss some subtlety in other fs's page_mkwrite()'s and inavertedly break them.
If I break btrfs I can fix it, I'm not as good with xfs.

If you want this in the generic layer and not in the fs I can go back and add a
vmf->fpin and vmf->mm, and then fix up all the mkwrite()'s to use that instead
of vmf->vma. I think that's the only things we care about so it wouldn't be
hard. Does that sound reasonable to you?

Also the size thing was just a paranoid way to make sure everything had stayed
exactly the same, but you're right, I'll just keep it consistent with all of our
other "is this page ok" checks. Thanks,

Josef
