I apologize for the extra emails (v2 was sent pretty recently), but I
didn't want to leave a known-broken version sitting out there, creating

Changes since v2:

* Critical bug fix: remove a stray "break;" from the new routine.

Changes since v1:

* Instead of providing __put_user_pages(), add an argument to
put_user_pages_dirty_lock(), and delete put_user_pages_dirty().
This is based on the following points:

1. Lots of call sites become simpler if a bool is passed
into put_user_page*(), instead of making the call site
choose which put_user_page*() variant to call.

2. Christoph Hellwig's observation that set_page_dirty_lock()
is usually correct, and set_page_dirty() is usually a
bug, or at least questionable, within a put_user_page*()
calling chain.

* Added the Infiniband driver back to the patch series, because it is
a caller of put_user_pages_dirty_lock().

Unchanged parts from the v1 cover letter (except for the diffstat):

Notes about the remaining patches to come:

There are about 50+ patches in my tree [2], and I'll be sending out the
remaining ones in a few more groups:

* The block/bio related changes (Jerome mostly wrote those, but I've
had to move stuff around extensively, and add a little code)

* mm/ changes

* other subsystem patches

* an RFC that shows the current state of the tracking patch set. That
can only be applied after all call sites are converted, but it's
good to get an early look at it.

This is part a tree-wide conversion, as described in commit fc1d8e7cca2d
("mm: introduce put_user_page*(), placeholder versions").
