Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Add gup fast + longterm and use it in HFI1

From: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@...el.com>

NOTE: This series depends on my clean up patch to remove the write parameter
from gup_fast_permitted()[1]

HFI1 uses get_user_pages_fast() due to it performance advantages.  Like RDMA,
HFI1 pages can be held for a significant time.  But get_user_pages_fast() does
not protect against mapping of FS DAX pages.

Introduce a get_user_pages_fast_longterm() which retains the performance while
also adding the FS DAX checks.  XDP has also shown interest in using this
functionality.[2]

  mm/gup: Change "write" parameter to flags
  mm/gup: Introduce get_user_pages_fast_longterm()
  IB/HFI1: Use new get_user_pages_fast_longterm()
