Subject[PATCH RFC 01/24] mm: gup: rename "nonblocking" to "locked" where proper
Date
There's plenty of places around __get_user_pages() that has a parameter
"nonblocking" which does not really mean that "it won't block" (because
it can really block) but instead it shows whether the mmap_sem is
released by up_read() during the page fault handling mostly when
VM_FAULT_RETRY is returned.

We have the correct naming in e.g. get_user_pages_locked() or
get_user_pages_remote() as "locked", however there're still many places
that are using the "nonblocking" as name.

Renaming the places to "locked" where proper to better suite the
functionality of the variable. While at it, fixing up some of the
comments accordingly.
