get_user_pages_fast(): return -EFAULT on access_ok failure
get_user_pages_fast is supposed to be a faster drop-in equivalent of get_user_pages. As such, callers expect it to return a negative return code when passed an invalid address, and never expect it to return 0 when passed a positive number of pages, since its documentation says: * 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. When get_user_pages_fast fall back on get_user_pages this is exactly what happens. Unfortunately the implementation is inconsistent: it returns 0 if passed a kernel address, confusing callers: for example, the following is pretty common but does not appear to do the right thing with a kernel address: ret = get_user_pages_fast(addr, 1, writeable, &page); if (ret < 0) return ret; Change get_user_pages_fast to return -EFAULT when supplied a kernel address to make it match expectations. All callers have been audited for consistency with the documented semantics.
