You can't sleep inside rcu_read_lock()!

I must say that for a patch that is up to v8 or whatever and is
posted twice a week to such a big cc list, it is kind of slack to
not even test it and expect other people to review it.

Also, what we are going to need here are not skeleton drivers
that just do all the *easy* bits (of registering their callbacks),
but actual fully working examples that do everything that any
real driver will need to do. If not for the sanity of the driver
writer, then for the sanity of the VM developers (I don't want
to have to understand xpmem or infiniband in order to understand
how the VM works).

Where do you invalidate for munmap()?

Also, how to you resolve the case where you are not allowed to sleep?
I would have thought either you have to handle it, in which case nobody
needs to sleep; or you can't handle it, in which case the code is
broken.
