The media model assumes that buffers are all preallocated, so that
when a media pipeline is running we never miss a deadline because the
buffers aren't allocated or available.

This means we cannot fix the v4l follow_pfn usage through
mmu_notifier, without breaking how this all works. The only real fix
is to deprecate userptr support for VM_IO | VM_PFNMAP mappings and
tell everyone to cut over to dma-buf memory sharing for zerocopy.

userptr for normal memory will keep working as-is, this only affects
the zerocopy userptr usage enabled in 50ac952d2263 ("[media]
videobuf2-dma-sg: Support io userptr operations on io memory").

v3:
- Reference the commit that enabled the zerocopy userptr use case to
  make it abundandtly clear that this patch only affects that, and not
  normal memory userptr. The old commit message already explained that
  normal memory userptr is unaffected, but I guess that was not clear
  enough.

Note that this is true only for the videobuf2 change. The videobuf1 code
was like this all the time and does not support normal memory in the
dma_contig variant (because normal memory is rarely physically contiguous).

If my understanding is correct that the CONFIG_STRICT_FOLLOW_PFN is not
enabled by default, we stay backwards compatible, with only whoever
decides to turn it on risking a breakage.

I agree that this is a good first step towards deprecating this legacy
code, so:

Of course the last word goes to Mauro. :)

Best regards,
Tomasz
