[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v4 1/1] sgi-gru: Remove *pte_lookup functions

The *pte_lookup functions can be removed and be easily replaced with
get_user_pages_fast functions. In the case of atomic lookup,
__get_user_pages_fast is used which does not fall back to slow
get_user_pages. get_user_pages_fast on the other hand tries to use
__get_user_pages_fast but fallbacks to slow get_user_pages if
__get_user_pages_fast fails.

Also unnecessary ifdefs to check for CONFIG_HUGETLB is removed as the
check is redundant.

This is a fold of the 3 patches in the v2 patch series.
The review tags were given to the individual patches.

Changes since v3
	- Used gup flags in get_user_pages_fast rather than
	boolean flags.
