Subject: [PATCH] mm/gup: fixup for ce35133be382 mm/gup: track FOLL_PIN pages

This is a fixup for the mmotm commit ce35133be382
("mm/gup: track FOLL_PIN pages").

Add kerneldoc comments for pin_user_pages*() routines, in order
to get rid of "make -W1" warnings when building mm/gup.o.

This just adds @param documentation of:
    pin_user_pages()
    pin_user_pages_fast()
    pin_user_pages_remote()

The param documentation was stolen from other gup.c functions,
because it looks reasonable enough.
