Subject: [PATCH v8 02/22] Allow page fault handlers to perform the COW

Currently COW of an XIP file is done by first bringing in a read-only
mapping, then retrying the fault and copying the page.  It is much more
efficient to tell the fault handler that a COW is being attempted (by
passing in the pre-allocated page in the vm_fault structure), and allow
the handler to perform the COW operation itself.
