If set_memory_*() returns with an error, call-site assumptions may be infact wrong to assume that it would either succeed or not succeed at all. Ideally, the failure of set_memory_*() should be passed up the call stack, and callers should examine the failure and deal with it. Need to fix the callers and add the __must_check attribute. They also may not provide any level of atomicity, in the sense that the memory protections may be left incomplete on failure. This issue likely has a few steps on effects architectures: 1)Have all callers of set_memory_*() helpers check the return value. 2)Add __must_check to all set_memory_*() helpers so that new uses do not ignore the return value. 3)Add atomicity to the calls so that the memory protections aren't left in a partial state. This series is part of step 1. Make drm/radeon check the return value of set_memory_*().
