This also fixes one or two likely bugs.

1. Change vfio from get_user_pages(FOLL_LONGTERM), to
pin_longterm_pages(), which sets both FOLL_LONGTERM and FOLL_PIN.

Note that this is a change in behavior, because the
get_user_pages_remote() call was not setting FOLL_LONGTERM, but the
new pin_user_pages_remote() call that replaces it, *is* setting
FOLL_LONGTERM. It is important to set FOLL_LONGTERM, because the
DMA case requires it. Please see the FOLL_PIN documentation in
include/linux/mm.h, and Documentation/pin_user_pages.rst for details.

2. Because all FOLL_PIN-acquired pages must be released via
put_user_page(), also convert the put_page() call over to
put_user_pages().

Note that this effectively changes the code's behavior in
vfio_iommu_type1.c: put_pfn(): it now ultimately calls
set_page_dirty_lock(), instead of set_page_dirty(). This is
probably more accurate.

As Christoph Hellwig put it, "set_page_dirty() is only safe if we are
dealing with a file backed page where we have reference on the inode it
hangs off." [1]

Well, actually just one...

Correction: the above comment is stale and wrong. I wrote it before 
getting further into the details, and the patch doesn't do this. 

Instead, it keeps exactly the old behavior: pin_longterm_pages_remote()
is careful to avoid setting FOLL_LONGTERM. Instead of setting that flag,
it drops in a "TODO" comment nearby. :)

I'll update the commit description in the next version of the series.


thanks,
