Previouly drivers have their own way of mapping range of
kernel pages/memory into user vma and this was done by
invoking vm_insert_page() within a loop.

As this pattern is common across different drivers, it can
be generalized by creating a new function and use it across
the drivers.

vm_insert_range is the new API which will be used to map a
range of kernel memory/pages to user vma.

This API is tested by Heiko for Rockchip drm driver, on rk3188,
rk3288, rk3328 and rk3399 with graphics.

Looks good to me.

Some of the sites being replaced were effectively ensuring that vma and 
pages were mutually compatible as an initial condition - would it be 
worth adding something here for robustness, e.g.:

+	if (page_count != vma_pages(vma))
+		return -ENXIO;

?

(then you could also clean up a couple more places where you're not 
already removing such checks)

I think we want to allow this to be used to populate part of a VMA.
So perhaps:

	if (page_count > vma_pages(vma))
		return -ENXIO;

Ok, This can be added.

I think Patch [2/9] is the only leftover place where this
check could be removed.

Right, 9/9 could also have relied on my stricter check here, but since 
it's really testing whether it actually managed to allocate vma_pages() 
worth of pages earlier, Matthew's more lenient version won't help for 
that one. (Why privcmd_buf_mmap() doesn't clean up and return an error 
as soon as that allocation loop fails, without taking the mutex under 
which it still does a bunch more pointless work to only undo it again, 
is a mind-boggling mystery, but that's not our problem here...)

I think some clean up can be done here in a separate patch.
