Subject[PATCH v5 3/9] mm: Add write-protect and clean utilities for address space ranges
Date
From: Thomas Hellstrom <thellstrom@vmware.com>

Add two utilities to a) write-protect and b) clean all ptes pointing into
a range of an address space.
The utilities are intended to aid in tracking dirty pages (either
driver-allocated system memory or pci device memory).
The write-protect utility should be used in conjunction with
page_mkwrite() and pfn_mkwrite() to trigger write page-faults on page
accesses. Typically one would want to use this on sparse accesses into
large memory regions. The clean utility should be used to utilize
hardware dirtying functionality and avoid the overhead of page-faults,
typically on large accesses into small memory regions.

The added file "as_dirty_helpers.c" is initially listed as maintained by
VMware under our DRM driver. If somebody would like it elsewhere,
that's of course no problem.

Notable changes since RFC:
- Added comments to help avoid the usage of these function for VMAs
it's not intended for. We also do advisory checks on the vm_flags and
warn on illegal usage.
- Perform the pte modifications the same way softdirty does.
- Add mmu_notifier range invalidation calls.
- Add a config option so that this code is not unconditionally included.
- Tell the mmu_gather code about pending tlb flushes.
