Subject[PATCH 2/2] mm/gup: frame_vector: convert get_user_pages() --> pin_user_pages()
Date
This code was using get_user_pages*(), and all of the callers so far
were in a "Case 2" scenario (DMA/RDMA), 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.
