vm_insert_page — insert single page into user vma
|struct vm_area_struct * vma,|

user vma to map to
unsigned long addr
target user address of this page
struct page * page
source kernel page
This allows drivers to insert individual pages they've allocated into a user vma.
The page has to be a nice clean _individual_ kernel allocation.
If you allocate a compound page, you need to have marked it as
such (__GFP_COMP), or manually just split the page up yourself
NOTE! Traditionally this was done with “
took an arbitrary page protection parameter. This doesn't allow
that. Your vma protection will have to be set up correctly, which
means that if you want a shared writable mapping, you'd better
ask for a shared writable mapping!
The page does not need to be reserved.
Usually this function is called from f_op->
under mm->mmap_sem write-lock, so it can change vma->vm_flags.
Caller must set VM_MIXEDMAP on vma if it wants to call this
function from other places, for example from page-fault handler.
