userfaultfd: UFFDIO_REMAP

This remap ioctl allows to atomically move a page in or out of an
userfaultfd address space. It's more expensive than "copy" (and of
course more expensive than "zerofill") as it requires a TLB flush on
the source range for each ioctl, which is an expensive operation on
SMP. Especially if copying only a few pages at time, copying without
TLB flush is faster.
