Subject[PATCH 3/3] misc: xilinx-sdfec: convert get_user_pages() --> pin_user_pages()
Date
This code was using get_user_pages*(), in approximately a "Case 1"
scenario (Direct IO), using the categorization from [1]. That means
that it's time to convert the get_user_pages*() + put_page() calls to
pin_user_pages*() + unpin_user_pages() calls.

There is some helpful background in [2]: basically, this is a small
part of fixing a long-standing disconnect between pinning pages, and
file systems' use of those pages.
