Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] mm/gup, media/ivtv: introduce pin_user_pages_unlocked


Here is a v2 that includes a small change that follows from Souptick's
review of another very similar patchset (that added
pin_user_pages_locked()) [1].

This applies on top of today's linux.git (5.7-rc7+).

Changes since v1: added an assert-and-return to the corresponding
get_user_pages_unlocked() call, to keep out any externally set
FOLL_PIN flag.

These patches are getting merged via Andrew's linux-mm tree, due to
adding a new pin_user_pages*() variant to gup.c. However, it would be
nice if anyone from IVTV or linux-media could provide some run time
testing, maybe even a Tested-by.

I've run this patchset through non-destructive xfstests, and a few
other things such as LTP. However, I'm not set up for IVTV specific
