Merge branch 'gup_flag-cleanups'
Merge the gup_flags cleanups from Lorenzo Stoakes: "This patch series adjusts functions in the get_user_pages* family such that desired FOLL_* flags are passed as an argument rather than implied by flags. The purpose of this change is to make the use of FOLL_FORCE explicit so it is easier to grep for and clearer to callers that this flag is being used. The use of FOLL_FORCE is an issue as it overrides missing VM_READ/VM_WRITE flags for the VMA whose pages we are reading from/writing to, which can result in surprising behaviour. The patch series came out of the discussion around commit 38e08854 ("mm: check VMA flags to avoid invalid PROT_NONE NUMA balancing"), which addressed a BUG_ON() being triggered when a page was faulted in with PROT_NONE set but having been overridden by FOLL_FORCE. do_numa_page() was run on the assumption the page _must_ be one marked for NUMA node migration as an actual PROT_NONE page would have been dealt with prior to this code path, however FOLL_FORCE introduced a situation where this assumption did not hold. See https://marc.info/?l=linux-mm&m=147585445805166 for the patch proposal" Additionally, there's a fix for an ancient bug related to FOLL_FORCE and FOLL_WRITE by me. [ This branch was rebased recently to add a few more acked-by's and reviewed-by's ] * gup_flag-cleanups: mm: replace access_process_vm() write parameter with gup_flags mm: replace access_remote_vm() write parameter with gup_flags mm: replace __access_remote_vm() write parameter with gup_flags mm: replace get_user_pages_remote() write/force parameters with gup_flags mm: replace get_user_pages() write/force parameters with gup_flags mm: replace get_vaddr_frames() write/force parameters with gup_flags mm: replace get_user_pages_locked() write/force parameters with gup_flags mm: replace get_user_pages_unlocked() write/force parameters with gup_flags mm: remove write/force parameters from __get_user_pages_unlocked() mm: remove write/force parameters from __get_user_pages_locked() mm: remove gup_flags FOLL_WRITE games from __get_user_pages()
