Subject: [PATCH v4 net-next 0/2] tcp: mmap: rework zerocopy receive

syzbot reported a lockdep issue caused by tcp mmap() support.

I implemented Andy Lutomirski nice suggestions to resolve the
issue and increase scalability as well.

First patch is adding a new getsockopt() operation and changes mmap()

Second patch changes tcp_mmap reference program.

v4: tcp mmap() support depends on CONFIG_MMU, as kbuild bot told us.

v3: change TCP_ZEROCOPY_RECEIVE to be a getsockopt() option
    instead of setsockopt(), feedback from Ka-Cheon Poon

v2: Added a missing page align of zc->length in tcp_zerocopy_receive()
    Properly clear zc->recv_skip_hint in case user request was completed.

Eric Dumazet (2):
  tcp: add TCP_ZEROCOPY_RECEIVE support for zerocopy receive
  selftests: net: tcp_mmap must use TCP_ZEROCOPY_RECEIVE
