Souptick Joarder - Dec. 24, 2018, 1:20 p.m.
Previouly drivers have their own way of mapping range of
kernel pages/memory into user vma and this was done by
invoking vm_insert_page() within a loop.

As this pattern is common across different drivers, it can
be generalized by creating a new function and use it across
the drivers.

vm_insert_range is the new API which will be used to map a
range of kernel memory/pages to user vma.

This API is tested by Heiko for Rockchip drm driver, on rk3188,
rk3288, rk3328 and rk3399 with graphics.
