Hi Dimitri,

Can you confirm that this driver will run gru_vtop() in interrupt
context?

If so, I ll send you another set of patches in which I don't change the
*pte_lookup functions but only change put_page to put_user_page and
remove the ifdef for CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you
Bharath
