Subject[PATCH v3.1 7/7] mm/gup: Allow VM_FAULT_RETRY for multiple times
Date
This is the gup counterpart of the change that allows the
VM_FAULT_RETRY to happen for more than once. One thing to mention is
that we must check the fatal signal here before retry because the GUP
can be interrupted by that, otherwise we can loop forever.
