This patch series adjusts functions in the get_user_pages* family such that
desired FOLL_* flags are passed as an argument rather than implied by flags.

The purpose of this change is to make the use of FOLL_FORCE explicit so it is
easier to grep for and clearer to callers that this flag is being used. The use
of FOLL_FORCE is an issue as it overrides missing VM_READ/VM_WRITE flags for the
VMA whose pages we are reading from/writing to, which can result in surprising
behaviour.

The patch series came out of the discussion around commit 38e0885, which
addressed a BUG_ON() being triggered when a page was faulted in with PROT_NONE
set but having been overridden by FOLL_FORCE. do_numa_page() was run on the
assumption the page _must_ be one marked for NUMA node migration as an actual
PROT_NONE page would have been dealt with prior to this code path, however
FOLL_FORCE introduced a situation where this assumption did not hold.

See https://marc.info/?l=linux-mm&m=147585445805166 for the patch proposal.
