 * copy_oldmem_page - copy one page from "oldmem"
 * @pfn: page frame number to be copied
 * @buf: target memory address for the copy; this can be in kernel address
 *    space or user address space (see @userbuf)
 * @csize: number of bytes to copy
 * @offset: offset in bytes into the page (based on pfn) to begin the copy
 * @userbuf: if set, @buf is in user address space, use copy_to_user(),
 *    otherwise @buf is in kernel address space, use memcpy().
 *
 * Copy a page from "oldmem". For this page, there is no pte mapped
 * in the current kernel. We stitch up a pte, similar to kmap_atomic.
 *
 * Calling copy_to_user() in atomic context is not desirable. Hence first
 * copying the data to a pre-allocated kernel page and then copying to user
 * space in non-atomic context.
