So what your saying is, there may be cases where current->mm != gts->ts_mm
right? __get_user_pages_fast and get_user_pages do assume current->mm.

These changes were inspired a bit from kvm. In kvm/kvm_main.c,
hva_to_pfn_fast uses __get_user_pages_fast. THe comment above the
function states it runs in atomic context.

Just curious, get_user_pages also uses current->mm. Do you think that is
also an issue?

Do you feel using get_user_pages_remote would be a better idea? We can
specify the mm_struct in get_user_pages_remote?

Thank you
