OK, thanks for the description.

I was refering to description of get_user_pages():

http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/mm/gup.c?id=v4.0-rc6#n765

 * @force:	whether to force access even when user mapping is currently
 *		protected (but never forces write access to shared mapping).

But since ib_umem_odp_map_dma_pages() use get_user_pages() with force
argument set to 0, it's OK.

Another related question: as the large memory range could be registered 
by user space with ibv_reg_mr(pd, base, size, IB_ACCESS_ON_DEMAND), 
what's prevent the kernel to map a file as the result of mmap(0, ...)
in this  region, making it available remotely through IBV_WR_RDMA_READ /
IBV_WR_RDMA_WRITE ?

Again, thanks for the information I was missing to understand how ODP is
checking the memory ranges.

Regards.
