parentvfio: fix FOLL_LONGTERM use, simplify get_user_pages_remote() call (diff)
mm/gup: allow FOLL_FORCE for get_user_pages_fast()
Commit 817be129e6f2 ("mm: validate get_user_pages_fast flags") allowed only FOLL_WRITE and FOLL_LONGTERM to be passed to get_user_pages_fast(). This, combined with the fact that get_user_pages_fast() falls back to "slow gup", which *does* accept FOLL_FORCE, leads to an odd situation: if you need FOLL_FORCE, you cannot call get_user_pages_fast(). There does not appear to be any reason for filtering out FOLL_FORCE. There is nothing in the _fast() implementation that requires that we avoid writing to the pages. So it appears to have been an oversight. Fix by allowing FOLL_FORCE to be set for get_user_pages_fast().
