Subject: [PATCH v3 0/4] vm: add a syscall to map a process memory into a pipe

From: Yossi Kuperman <yossiku@...ibm.com>

Hi,

This patches introduces new process_vmsplice system call that combines
functionality of process_vm_read and vmsplice.

It allows to map the memory of another process into a pipe, similarly to
what vmsplice does for its own address space.

The patch 2/4 ("vm: add a syscall to map a process memory into a pipe")
actually adds the new system call and provides its elaborate description.

The patchset is against -mm tree.

v3: minor refactoring to reduce code duplication
v2: move this syscall under CONFIG_CROSS_MEMORY_ATTACH
    give correct flags to get_user_pages_remote()

Andrei Vagin (3):
  vm: add a syscall to map a process memory into a pipe
  x86: wire up the process_vmsplice syscall
  test: add a test for the process_vmsplice syscall
