Subject[PATCH 1/4] mm/highmem: Lift memcpy_[to|from]_page to core
Date
From: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@intel.com>

Working through a conversion to a call kmap_local_page() instead of
kmap() revealed many places where the pattern kmap/memcpy/kunmap
occurred.

Eric Biggers, Matthew Wilcox, Christoph Hellwig, Dan Williams, and Al
Viro all suggested putting this code into helper functions. Al Viro
further pointed out that these functions already existed in the iov_iter
code.[1]

Various locations for the lifted functions were considered.

Headers like mm.h or string.h seem ok but don't really portray the
functionality well. pagemap.h made some sense but is for page cache
functionality.[2]

Another alternative would be to create a new header for the promoted
memcpy functions, but it masks the fact that these are designed to copy
to/from pages using the kernel direct mappings and complicates matters
with a new header.

Placing these functions in 'highmem.h' is suboptimal especially with the
changes being proposed in the functionality of kmap. From a caller
perspective including/using 'highmem.h' implies that the functions
defined in that header are only required when highmem is in use which is
increasingly not the case with modern processors. However, highmem.h is
where all the current functions like this reside (zero_user(),
clear_highpage(), clear_user_highpage(), copy_user_highpage(), and
copy_highpage()). So it makes the most sense even though it is
distasteful for some.[3]

Lift memcpy_to_page() and memcpy_from_page() to pagemap.h.

Remove memzero_page() in favor of zero_user() to zero a page.

Add a memcpy_page(), memmove_page, and memset_page() to cover more
kmap/mem*/kunmap. patterns.

Add BUG_ON bounds checks to ensure the newly lifted page memory
operations do not result in corrupted data in neighbor pages and to make
them consistent with zero_user().[4]

Finally use kmap_local_page() in all the new calls.

Chagnes for V4:
Update commit message to say kmap_local_page() since
kmap_thread() is no longer valid

Changes for V3:
From Matthew Wilcox
Move calls to highmem.h
Add BUG_ON()

Changes for V2:
From Thomas Gleixner
Change kmap_atomic() to kmap_local_page() after basing
on tip/core/mm
From Joonas Lahtinen
Reverse offset/val in memset_page()
