Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] xen/privcmd: Convert get_user_pages*() to  pin_user_pages*()

In 2019, we introduced pin_user_pages*() and now we are converting
get_user_pages*() to the new API as appropriate. [1] & [2] could
be referred for more information. This is case 5 as per document [1].

[1] Documentation/core-api/pin_user_pages.rst

[2] "Explicit pinning of user-space pages":
