Subject: [PATCH] genwqe: convert get_user_pages() --> pin_user_pages()

This code was using get_user_pages*(), in a "Case 2" scenario
(DMA/RDMA), using the categorization from [1]. That means that it's
time to convert the get_user_pages*() + put_page() calls to
pin_user_pages*() + unpin_user_pages() calls.

There is some helpful background in [2]: basically, this is a small
part of fixing a long-standing disconnect between pinning pages, and
file systems' use of those pages.

Hi,

Note that I have only compile-tested this patch, although that does
also include cross-compiling for a few other arches...but it only
seemed to be supported on x86_64 and sparc, for those.

thanks,
