Well, the enum defeats the ease of just being able to pass a boolean
expression to the function, which would simplify a lot of the caller,
so if we need to support the !locked version I'd rather see that as
a separate helper.

But do we actually have callers where not using the _lock version is
not a bug? set_page_dirty makes sense in the context of a file systems
that have a reference to the inode the page hangs off, but that is
(almost?) never the case for get_user_pages.
