Revert "mm: replace p??_write with pte_access_permitted in fault + gup paths"
This reverts commits 5c9d2d5c, c7da82b8, and e7fe7b5c. We'll probably need to revisit this, but basically we should not complicate the get_user_pages_fast() case, and checking the actual page table protection key bits will require more care anyway, since the protection keys depend on the exact state of the VM in question. Particularly when doing a "remote" page lookup (ie in somebody elses VM, not your own), you need to be much more careful than this was. Dave Hansen says: "So, the underlying bug here is that we now a get_user_pages_remote() and then go ahead and do the p*_access_permitted() checks against the current PKRU. This was introduced recently with the addition of the new p??_access_permitted() calls. We have checks in the VMA path for the "remote" gups and we avoid consulting PKRU for them. This got missed in the pkeys selftests because I did a ptrace read, but not a *write*. I also didn't explicitly test it against something where a COW needed to be done" It's also not entirely clear that it makes sense to check the protection key bits at this level at all. But one possible eventual solution is to make the get_user_pages_fast() case just abort if it sees protection key bits set, which makes us fall back to the regular get_user_pages() case, which then has a vma and can do the check there if we want to. We'll see. Somewhat related to this all: what we _do_ want to do some day is to check the PAGE_USER bit - it should obviously always be set for user pages, but it would be a good check to have back. Because we have no generic way to test for it, we lost it as part of moving over from the architecture-specific x86 GUP implementation to the generic one in commit e585513b ("x86/mm/gup: Switch GUP to the generic get_user_page_fast() implementation").
