From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

Add a helper to test if call to iov_iter_get_pages*() with a given
iter would result in calls to GUP (get_user_pages*()). We want to
use different tracking of page references if they are coming from
GUP (get_user_pages*()) and thus  we need to know when GUP is used
for a given iter.

Changes since Jérôme's original patch:

* iov_iter_get_pages_use_gup(): do not return true for the ITER_PIPE
case, because iov_iter_get_pages() calls pipe_get_pages(), which in
turn uses get_page(), not get_user_pages().

* Remove some obsolete code, as part of rebasing onto Linux 5.3.

* Fix up the kerneldoc comment to "Return:" rather than "Returns:",
and a few other grammatical tweaks.
