Subject: [PATCH v9 19/25] vfio, mm: pin_user_pages (FOLL_PIN) and put_user_page() conversion

1. Change vfio from get_user_pages_remote(), to
pin_user_pages_remote().

2. Because all FOLL_PIN-acquired pages must be released via
put_user_page(), also convert the put_page() call over to
put_user_pages_dirty_lock().

Note that this effectively changes the code's behavior in
vfio_iommu_type1.c: put_pfn(): it now ultimately calls
set_page_dirty_lock(), instead of set_page_dirty(). This is
probably more accurate.

As Christoph Hellwig put it, "set_page_dirty() is only safe if we are
dealing with a file backed page where we have reference on the inode it
hangs off." [1]
