mm/gup_benchmark: handle gup failures
Patch series "mm/get_user_pages_fast fixes, cleanups", v2. Turns out get_user_pages_fast and __get_user_pages_fast return different values on error when given a single page: __get_user_pages_fast returns 0. get_user_pages_fast returns either 0 or an error. Callers of get_user_pages_fast expect an error so fix it up to return an error consistently. Stress the difference between get_user_pages_fast and __get_user_pages_fast to make sure callers aren't confused. This patch (of 3): __gup_benchmark_ioctl does not handle the case where get_user_pages_fast fails: - a negative return code will cause a buffer overrun - returning with partial success will cause use of uninitialized memory.
