SubjectRe: [PATCH mm-unstable RFC 00/26] mm: support __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SWP_EXCLUSIVE on all architectures with swap PTEs

Hi Huacai,

thanks for having a look!

Please note that this series doesn't add these primitives but merely
implements them on all remaining architectures.

Having that said, the semantics are "exclusive" vs. "maybe shared", not
"exclusive" vs. "shared" or sth. else. It would have to be
pte_swp_mkmaybe_shared().


Note that this naming matches just the way we handle it for the other
pte_swp_ flags we have, namely:

pte_swp_mksoft_dirty()
pte_swp_soft_dirty()
pte_swp_clear_soft_dirty()

and

pte_swp_mkuffd_wp()
pte_swp_uffd_wp()
pte_swp_clear_uffd_wp()


For example, we also (thankfully) didn't call it pte_mksoft_clean().
Grepping for "pte_swp.*soft_dirty" gives you the full picture.

Thanks!

David
