Subject[PATCH v5 9/9] mm/mmu_notifier: set MMU_NOTIFIER_USE_CHANGE_PTE flag where appropriate v2
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

When notifying change for a range use MMU_NOTIFIER_USE_CHANGE_PTE flag
for page table update that use set_pte_at_notify() and where the we are
going either from read and write to read only with same pfn or read only
to read and write with new pfn.

Note that set_pte_at_notify() itself should only be use in rare cases
ie we do not want to use it when we are updating a significant range of
virtual addresses and thus a significant number of pte. Instead for
those cases the event provided to mmu notifer invalidate_range_start()
callback should be use for optimization.

Changes since v1:
- Use the new unsigned flags field in struct mmu_notifier_range
- Use the new flags parameter to mmu_notifier_range_init()
- Explicitly list all the patterns where we can use change_pte()
