On the fast path, we first try to pin the user pages and then attach the
mmu-notifier. On the slow path, we did it the opposite way around,
carrying the mmu-notifier over from the tail of the fast path. However,
if we are mapping a fresh batch of user pages, we will always hit a pmd
split operation (to replace the zero pages with real pages), triggering
an invalidate-range callback for this userptr, and so we have to cancel
the work [after completing the pinning] and cause the caller to retry
(an extra EAGAIN return from an ioctl for some paths). If we follow the
fast path approach and attach the callback after completion, we only see
the invalidate-range for revocations of our pages.

The risk (the same as for the fast path) is that if the mmu-notifier
should have been run during the page lookup, we will have missed it and
the pages will be mixed. One might conclude that the fast path is wrong,
and we should always attach the mmu-notifier first and bear the cost of
redundant repetition.
