Subject[PATCH 0/2] put_user_page*(): start converting the call sites
Date
From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

Hi,

Summary: I'd like these two patches to go into the next convenient cycle.
I *think* that means 4.21.

Details

At the Linux Plumbers Conference, we talked about this approach [1], and
the primary lingering concern was over performance. Tom Talpey helped me
through a much more accurate run of the fio performance test, and now
it's looking like an under 1% performance cost, to add and remove pages
from the LRU (this is only paid when dealing with get_user_pages) [2]. So
we should be fine to start converting call sites.

This patchset gets the conversion started. Both patches already had a fair
amount of review.

(Tom, I'll add you Tested-by to the actual implementation that moves
pages on and off the LRU. These first two patches don't do that.)
