Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/8] use core page calls instead of kmaps

This RFC is based on the discussion going on the linux-fsdevel [1].

I've tested this on the brd and null_blk. The fio verify job seems to
run without any error on the top of the original series applied [1].

Any feedback is welcome to move this forward.

  brd: use memcpy_from_page() in copy_from_brd()
  brd: use memcpy_from_page() in copy_from_brd()
  null_blk: use memcpy_page() in copy_to_nullb()
  null_blk: use memcpy_page() in copy_from_nullb()
  ext4: use memcpy_from_page() in pagecache_read()
  ext4: use memcpy_to_page() in pagecache_write()
  f2fs: use memcpy_from_page() in pagecache_read()
  f2fs: use memcpy_to_page() in pagecache_write()
