mlock: do not hold mmap_sem for extended periods of time
__get_user_pages gets a new 'nonblocking' parameter to signal that the caller is prepared to re-acquire mmap_sem and retry the operation if needed. This is used to split off long operations if they are going to block on a disk transfer, or when we detect contention on the mmap_sem.
