OK, thanks for that note. According to that history.git [1],
then: drivers/video/pvr2fb.c had get_user_pages_fast() support added to
pvr2fb_write() back in 2004, but only for CONFIG_SH_DMA, as part of

commit 434502754f2 ("[PATCH] SH Merge")

...and that commit created the minor bug that patch 0001 here
addresses. (+Cc Paul just for the sake of completeness.)

I mentioned this one, but I guess content should be the same.

Actually, that history.git *starts* at Linux 2.6.12-rc2,

It's not true.

OK I see, neither a straight "git log" nor git branches will suffice, you
have to use tags in order to get to the older versions.

tglx/history.git *ends* at Linux 2.6.12-rc2 (which is in April, 2005).
And the commit I was looking for is in 2004. So that's why I needed a
different stretch of history.

Actually history/history.git contains all of them starting from v0.01.
But it ends, indeed, on 2.6.33.
