From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

Provide a more capable variation of put_user_pages_dirty_lock(),
and delete put_user_pages_dirty(). This is based on the
following:

1. Lots of call sites become simpler if a bool is passed
into put_user_page*(), instead of making the call site
choose which put_user_page*() variant to call.

2. Christoph Hellwig's observation that set_page_dirty_lock()
is usually correct, and set_page_dirty() is usually a
bug, or at least questionable, within a put_user_page*()
calling chain.

This leads to the following API choices:

    * put_user_pages_dirty_lock(page, npages, make_dirty)

    * There is no put_user_pages_dirty(). You have to
      hand code that, in the rare case that it's
      required.

I don't think users of this interface need this level of detail.  I think
something like.

 * For each page in the @pages array, release the page.  If @make_dirty is
 * true, mark the page dirty prior to release.

I think this comment belongs to the for loop below...  or just something about
how to make this and put_user_pages() more efficient.  It is odd, that this is
the same comment as in put_user_pages()...

The code is good.  So... Other than the comments.

Yes, it is too wordy, I'll change to that.

Actually I think I'll just delete the comment entirely, it's just noise really.
