[PATCH v5 8/9] mm/mmu_notifier: mmu_notifier_range_update_to_read_only() helper

From: jglisse
Date: Tue Feb 19 2019 - 15:05:56 EST

From: JÃrÃme Glisse <jglisse@xxxxxxxxxx>

Helper to test if a range is updated to read only (it is still valid
to read from the range). This is useful for device driver or anyone
who wish to optimize out update when they know that they already have
the range map read only.
