Subject[PATCH 02/13] SPARC64: Fix D-cache corruption in mremap
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

If we move a mapping from one virtual address to another,
and this changes the virtual color of the mapping to those
pages, we can see corrupt data due to D-cache aliasing.

Check for and deal with this by overriding the move_pte()
macro. Set things up so that other platforms can cleanly
override the move_pte() macro too.

This long standing bug corrupts user memory, and in particular
has been notorious for corrupting Debian package database
files on sparc64 boxes.
