Subject: [PATCH 1/9] mm: Allow the [page|pfn]_mkwrite callbacks to drop the
 mmap_sem

Driver fault callbacks are allowed to drop the mmap_sem when expecting
long hardware waits to avoid blocking other mm users. Allow the mkwrite
callbacks to do the same by returning early on VM_FAULT_RETRY.

In particular we want to be able to drop the mmap_sem when waiting for
a reservation object lock on a GPU buffer object. These locks may be
held while waiting for the GPU.
