[Cluster-devel] [PATCH v6 17/19] iov_iter: Introduce nofault flag to disable page faults



Introduce a new nofault flag to indicate to get_user_pages to use the
FOLL_NOFAULT flag.  This will cause get_user_pages to fail when it
would otherwise fault in a page.

Currently, the noio flag is only checked in iov_iter_get_pages and
iov_iter_get_pages_alloc.  This is enough for iomaop_dio_rw, but it
may make sense to check in other contexts as well.
