__get_user_pages() is already exported function, so get_user_pages()
can be easily inlined to the caller functions.

+ *		Should be at least nr_pages long. Or NULL, if caller
+ *		only intends to ensure the pages are faulted in.
+ * @vmas:	array of pointers to vmas corresponding to each page.
+ *		Or NULL if the caller does not require them.
+ *
+ * Returns number of pages pinned. This may be fewer than the number
+ * requested. If nr_pages is 0 or negative, returns 0. If no pages
+ * were pinned, returns -errno. Each page returned must be released
+ * with a put_page() call when it is finished with. vmas will only
+ * remain valid while mmap_sem is held.
+ *
+ * Must be called with mmap_sem held for read or write.
+ *
+ * get_user_pages walks a process's page tables and takes a reference to
+ * each struct page that each user address corresponds to at a given
+ * instant. That is, it takes the page that would be accessed if a user
+ * thread accesses the given user virtual address at that instant.
+ *
+ * This does not guarantee that the page exists in the user mappings when
+ * get_user_pages returns, and there may even be a completely different
+ * page there in some cases (eg. if mmapped pagecache has been invalidated
+ * and subsequently re faulted). However it does guarantee that the page
+ * won't be freed completely. And mostly callers simply care that the page
+ * contains data that was valid *at some point in time*. Typically, an IO
+ * or similar operation cannot guarantee anything stronger anyway because
+ * locks can't be held over the syscall boundary.
+ *
+ * If write=0, the page must not be written to. If the page is written to,
+ * set_page_dirty (or set_page_dirty_lock, as appropriate) must be called
+ * after the page is finished with, and before put_page is called.
+ *
+ * get_user_pages is typically used for fewer-copy IO operations, to get a
+ * handle on the memory by some means other than accesses via the user virtual
+ * addresses. The pages may be submitted for DMA to devices or accessed via

+ * use the correct cache flushing APIs.
