      mm/gup: Remove the macro overload API migration helpers from the get_user*() APIs · c12d2da5
      Ingo Molnar authored
      The pkeys changes brought about a truly hideous set of macros in:
      
        cde70140 ("mm/gup: Overload get_user_pages() functions")
      
      ... which macros are (ab-)using the fact that __VA_ARGS__ can be used
      to shift parameter positions in macro arguments without breaking the
      build and so can be used to call separate C functions depending on
      the number of arguments of the macro.
      
      This allowed easy migration of these 3 GUP APIs, as both these variants
      worked at the C level:
      
        old:
      	ret = get_user_pages(current, current->mm, address, 1, 1, 0, &page, NULL);
      
        new:
      	ret = get_user_pages(address, 1, 1, 0, &page, NULL);
      
      ... while we also generated a (functionally harmless but noticeable) build
      time warning if the old API was used. As there are over 300 uses of these
      APIs, this trick eased the migration of the API and avoided excessive
      migration pain in linux-next.
      
      Now, with its work done, get rid of all of that complication and ugliness:
      
          3 files changed, 16 insertions(+), 140 deletions(-)
      
      ... where the linecount of the migration hack was further inflated by the
      fact that there are NOMMU variants of these GUP APIs as well.
      
      Much of the conversion was done in linux-next over the past couple of months,
      and Linus recently removed all remaining old API uses from the upstream tree
      in the following upstrea commit:
      
        cb107161
      
       ("Convert straggling drivers to new six-argument get_user_pages()")
      
      There was one more old-API usage in mm/gup.c, in the CONFIG_HAVE_GENERIC_RCU_GUP
      code path that ARM, ARM64 and PowerPC uses.
      
      After this commit any old API usage will break the build.
      
      [ Also fixed a PowerPC/HAVE_GENERIC_RCU_GUP warning reported by Stephen Rothwell. ]

      Convert straggling drivers to new six-argument get_user_pages() · cb107161
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Commit d4edcf0d ("mm/gup: Switch all callers of get_user_pages() to
      not pass tsk/mm") switched get_user_pages() callers to the simpler model
      where they no longer pass in the thread and mm pointer.  But since then
      we've merged changes to a few drivers that re-introduce use of the old
      interface.  Let's fix them up.
      
      They continued to work fine (thanks to the truly disgusting macros
      introduced in commit cde70140
      
      : "mm/gup: Overload get_user_pages()
      functions"), but cause unnecessary build noise.
