Subject[PATCH 3/5] mm: Rework return value for copy_one_pte()
Date
There's one special path for copy_one_pte() with swap entries, in which
add_swap_count_continuation(GFP_ATOMIC) might fail. In that case we'll return
the swp_entry_t so that the caller will release the locks and redo the same
thing with GFP_KERNEL.

It's confusing when copy_one_pte() must return a swp_entry_t (even if all the
ptes are non-swap entries). More importantly, we face other requirement to
extend this "we need to do something else, but without the locks held" case.

Rework the return value into something easier to understand, as defined in enum
copy_mm_ret. We'll pass the swp_entry_t back using the newly introduced union
copy_mm_data parameter.

Another trivial change is to move the reset of the "progress" counter into the
retry path, so that we'll reset it for other reasons too.

This should prepare us with adding new return codes, very soon.
