Subject[PATCH v3 3/5] mm: Introduce page_needs_cow_for_dma() for deciding whether cow
Date
We've got quite a few places (pte, pmd, pud) that explicitly checked against
whether we should break the cow right now during fork(). It's easier to
provide a helper, especially before we work the same thing on hugetlbfs.

Since we'll reference is_cow_mapping() in mm.h, move it there too. Actually it
suites mm.h more since internal.h is mm/ only, but mm.h is exported to the
whole kernel. With that we should expect another patch to use is_cow_mapping()
whenever we can across the kernel since we do use it quite a lot but it's
always done with raw code against VM_* flags.
