[PATCH 4/7] mm/gup: Make pages referenced during generic get_user_pages_fast()




This is preparation patch for transition of x86 to generic GUP_fast()
implementation.

Unlike generic GUP_fast(), x86 version makes all pages it touches
referenced. It seems required for GRU and EPT.

See commit 8ee53820edfd ("thp: mmu_notifier_test_young").
