Hi Linus,

Please pull this small refactoring series that moves all the support
functions for file range remapping (aka reflink and dedupe) out of
mm/filemap.c and fs/read_write.c and into fs/remap_range.c.

It's been a full week since the initial discussion[1] on fsdevel, and in
that time, nobody has complained about breakage in for-next, and the
relevant parts of the codebase haven't changed significantly.  I was
expecting to have to rebase this branch, but aside from the trivial
merge conflict in fs/Makefile this actually still applies cleanly atop
master as of a couple hours ago.

(FWIW I took your suggestion about license headers and didn't drag the
copyright notices along from the other two files.)

So, I tagged my work branch from last week a little while ago and am now
sending this for consideration.  Please let me know if you have any
complaints about pulling this, since I can rework the branch.

  vfs: move the generic write and copy checks out of mm (2020-10-15 09:50:01 -0700)

Refactored code for 5.10:
- Move the file range remap generic functions out of mm/filemap.c and
fs/read_write.c and into fs/remap_range.c to reduce clutter in the first
two files.
