Subject[PATCH 2/4] mm/hmm: allow snapshot of the special zero page
Date
Allow hmm_range_fault() to return success (0) when the CPU pagetable
entry points to the special shared zero page.
The caller can then handle the zero page by possibly clearing device
private memory instead of DMAing a zero page.
