From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

pin_user_page() is an externally-usable version of try_grab_page(), but
with semantics that match get_page(), so that it can act as a drop-in
replacement for get_page(). Specifically, pin_user_page() has a void
return type.

pin_user_page() elevates a page's refcount is using FOLL_PIN rules. This
means that the caller must release the page via unpin_user_page().
