Ok.

Yes, this can be added. Does get_user_page_fast_only() naming is fine ?

Poor mistake.


@@ -1998,7 +1998,7 @@ int gfn_to_page_many_atomic(struct
kvm_memory_slot *slot, gfn_t gfn,
        if (entry < nr_pages)

-       return __get_user_pages_fast(addr, nr_pages, 1, pages);
+       return get_user_pages_fast(addr, nr_pages, FOLL_WRITE, pages);

Also this needs to be corrected.
