[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/9] Use vm_insert_range

Previouly drivers have their own way of mapping range of
kernel pages/memory into user vma and this was done by
invoking vm_insert_page() within a loop.

As this pattern is common across different drivers, it can
be generalized by creating a new function and use it across
the drivers.

vm_insert_range is the new API which will be used to map a
range of kernel memory/pages to user vma.

All the applicable places are converted to use new vm_insert_range
in this patch series.

v1 -> v2:
        Address review comment on mm/memory.c. Add EXPORT_SYMBOL
        for vm_insert_range and corrected the documentation part
        for this API.

        In drivers/gpu/drm/xen/xen_drm_front_gem.c, replace err
        with ret as suggested.

        In drivers/iommu/dma-iommu.c, handle the scenario of partial
        mmap() of large buffer by passing *pages + vma->vm_pgoff* to

v2 -> v3:
        Declaration of vm_insert_range() moved to include/linux/mm.h

v3 -> v4:
        Address review comments.
        In mm/memory.c. Added error check.

        In arch/arm/mm/dma-mapping.c, remove part of error check as the
        similar is checked inside vm_insert_range.

        In rockchip/rockchip_drm_gem.c, vma->vm_pgoff is respected as
        this might be passed as non zero value considering partial
        mapping of large buffer.

        In iommu/dma-iommu.c, count is modifed as (count - vma->vm_pgoff)
        to handle partial mapping scenario in v2.
