mm: don't rely on flags coincidence
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 23 Jun 2009 12:52:49 +0000 (13:52 +0100)]
Indeed FOLL_WRITE matches FAULT_FLAG_WRITE, matches GUP_FLAGS_WRITE,
and it's tempting to devise a set of Grand Unified Paging flags;
but not today.  So until then, let's rely upon the compiler to spot
the coincidence, "rather than have that subtle dependency and a
comment for it" - as you remarked in another context yesterday.
