Subject: [PATCH 8/11] Add install_special_mapping
Date: Sat, 13 Jan 2007 21:36:34 -0800 (PST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070114053634.0FDB21800E5@magilla.sf.frob.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: Roland McGrath's message of  Saturday, 13 January 2007 21:31:39 -0800 <20070114053140.351701800E5@magilla.sf.frob.com>


This patchs adds a utility function install_special_mapping, for creating a
special vma using a fixed set of preallocated pages as backing, such as for
a vDSO.  This consolidates some nearly identical code used for vDSO mapping
reimplemented for different architectures.
