* with iovec-backed, any of those primitives under pagefault_disable()
is seriously wrong. To the point where we probably want to complain when
called that way. That, of course, needs to be checked at the outermost level -
the primitives might do pagefault_disable() internally; that's fine. Outside
caller doing that under pagefault_disable() isn't.
* uaccess_kernel() (== set_fs(KERNEL_DS)) has nothing to do with it.
If anything, we should not do copyin/copyout on iovec-backed ones with that
* telling lockdep that we might end up grabbing ->mm->mmap_sem, OTOH,
is the right thing to do. In addition to might_sleep().
Linus, could you hold that one back until tomorrow? I want to tweak the
last commit in there a bit, but I want to give it a local beating first...
