Subject[PATCH v3 0/7] mm: Page fault enhancements
Date
v3:
- check fatal signals in __get_user_page_locked() [Linus]
- add r-bs

v2:
- resent previous version, rebase only

This series is split out of userfaultfd-wp series to only cover the
general page fault changes, since it seems to make sense itself.

Basically it does two things:

(a) Allows the page fault handlers to be more interactive on not
only SIGKILL, but also the rest of userspace signals (especially
for user-mode faults), and,

(b) Allows the page fault retry (VM_FAULT_RETRY) to happen for more
than once.

I'm keeping the CC list as in uffd-wp v5, hopefully I'm not sending
too much spams...

And, instead of writting again the cover letter, I'm just copy-pasting
my previous link here which has more details on why we do this:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/10691991/

The major change from that latest version should be that we introduced
a new page fault flag FAULT_FLAG_INTERRUPTIBLE as suggested by Linus
[1] to represents that we would like the fault handler to respond to
non-fatal signals. Also, we're more careful now on when to do the
immediate return of the page fault for such signals. For example, now
we'll only check against signal_pending() for user-mode page faults
and we keep the kernel-mode page fault patch untouched for it. More
information can be found in separate patches.

The patchset is only lightly tested on x86.

All comments are greatly welcomed. Thanks,
