Subject: [PATCH v3 3/3] mm/gup: Remove try_get_page(), call try_get_compound_head() directly
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2021 21:41:33 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210813044133.1536842-4-jhubbard@nvidia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210813044133.1536842-1-jhubbard@nvidia.com>

try_get_page() is very similar to try_get_compound_head(), and in fact
try_get_page() has fallen a little behind in terms of maintenance:
try_get_compound_head() handles speculative page references more
thoroughly.

There are only two try_get_page() callsites, so just call
try_get_compound_head() directly from those, and remove try_get_page()
entirely.

Also, seeing as how this changes try_get_compound_head() into a
non-static function, provide some kerneldoc documentation for it.
