    % I've just had a look at porting it, and I note the following:
    %
    % 1. The patch to mm/vmalloc.c patches the function vremap which
    % appears not to exist in 2.2.9 ???

    It was renamed to ioremap and moved to arch/<arch>/mm/ioremap.c .

    But this part of the patch looks bad to me anyway; it stops anyone from
    mapping part of the hole to VM, but presumably anything that does this
    knows what it's doing (probably a driver mapping memory straight from an
    ISA card). Or am I missing something?

    % 2. The patch to the configuration help file doesn't apply very
    % well, as it quotes configuration options that no longer exist.
    %
    % I'll see what I can do with it though...

    Doesn't look worth saving, as Stephen Early's patch looks more flexible
    (not to mention supporting far more machines).
