Hi Andrew,

After merging the akpm-current tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

drivers/vfio/vfio_iommu_type1.c: In function 'vaddr_get_pfn':
drivers/vfio/vfio_iommu_type1.c:364:9: error: too few arguments to function 'get_user_pages_remote'
ret = get_user_pages_remote(NULL, mm, vaddr, 1, flags, page,
In file included from include/linux/scatterlist.h:7:0,

include/linux/mm.h:1274:6: note: declared here
long get_user_pages_remote(struct task_struct *tsk, struct mm_struct *mm,

Caused by commit

d6c547ad0c61 ("mm: add locked parameter to get_user_pages_remote()")

interacting with commit

ea85cf353e4f ("vfio iommu type1: Update argument of vaddr_get_pfn()")

from the vfio tree.

I applied this merge fix patch:
