[PATCH v4 7/8] mm, hmm: Mark hmm_devmem_{add, add_resource} EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL




The routines hmm_devmem_add(), and hmm_devmem_add_resource() duplicated
devm_memremap_pages() and are now simple now wrappers around the core
facility to inject a dev_pagemap instance into the global pgmap_radix
and hook page-idle events. The devm_memremap_pages() interface is base
infrastructure for HMM. HMM has more and deeper ties into the kernel
memory management implementation than base ZONE_DEVICE which is itself a
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL facility.

Originally, the HMM page structure creation routines copied the
devm_memremap_pages() code and reused ZONE_DEVICE. A cleanup to unify
the implementations was discussed during the initial review:
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1701.2/00812.html
Recent work to extend devm_memremap_pages() for the peer-to-peer-DMA
facility enabled this cleanup to move forward.

In addition to the integration with devm_memremap_pages() HMM depends on
other GPL-only symbols:

    mmu_notifier_unregister_no_release
    percpu_ref
    region_intersects
    __class_create

It goes further to consume / indirectly expose functionality that is not
exported to any other driver:

    alloc_pages_vma
    walk_page_range

HMM depends upon and extends deep core-kernel fundamentals. Mark its
main entry points EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL().
