Subject[PATCH v7 23/24] x86/mm: Add speculative pagefault handling
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

Try a speculative fault before acquiring mmap_sem, if it returns with
VM_FAULT_RETRY continue with the mmap_sem acquisition and do the
traditional fault.

Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra (Intel) <peterz@infradead.org>

[Clearing of FAULT_FLAG_ALLOW_RETRY is now done in
handle_speculative_fault()]
[Retry with usual fault path in the case VM_ERROR is returned by
handle_speculative_fault(). This allows signal to be delivered]
[Don't build SPF call if !CONFIG_SPECULATIVE_PAGE_FAULT]
[Try speculative fault path only for multi threaded processes]
[Try to the VMA fetch during the speculative path in case of retry]
