    mm/gup: Overload get_user_pages() functions · cde70140
    Dave Hansen authored
    The concept here was a suggestion from Ingo.  The implementation
    horrors are all mine.
    This allows get_user_pages(), get_user_pages_unlocked(), and
    get_user_pages_locked() to be called with or without the
    leading tsk/mm arguments.  We will give a compile-time warning
    about the old style being __deprecated and we will also
    WARN_ON() if the non-remote version is used for a remote-style
    Doing this, folks will get nice warnings and will not break the
    build.  This should be nice for -next and will hopefully let
    developers fix up their own code instead of maintainers needing
    to do it at merge time.
    The way we do this is hideous.  It uses the __VA_ARGS__ macro
    functionality to call different functions based on the number
    of arguments passed to the macro.
    There's an additional hack to ensure that our EXPORT_SYMBOL()
    of the deprecated symbols doesn't trigger a warning.
    We should be able to remove this mess as soon as -rc1 hits in
    the release after this is merged.
