Subject: [PATCH 1/2] rapidio: fix an error in get_user_pages_fast() error handling

In the case of get_user_pages_fast() returning fewer pages than
requested, rio_dma_transfer() does not quite do the right thing.
It attempts to release all the pages that were requested, rather
than just the pages that were pinned.

Fix the error handling so that only the pages that were successfully
pinned are released.
