Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] mm/get_user_pages_fast fixes, cleanups

Turns out get_user_pages_fast and __get_user_pages_fast return different
values on error when given a single page: __get_user_pages_fast returns
0.  get_user_pages_fast returns either 0 or an error.

Callers of get_user_pages_fast expect an error so fix it up to return an
error consistently.

Stress the difference between get_user_pages_fast and __get_user_pages_fast
to make sure callers aren't confused.

Changes from v1:
	limit code changes to get_user_pages_fast.
	document __get_user_pages_fast
	fix a bug in caller

  mm/gup_benchmark: handle gup failures
  gup: return -EFAULT on access_ok failure
  mm/gup: document return value
