    Exactly. My patch is an additional fix/cleanup to bring the hugetlbfs
    shm segments as close to their normal counterparts as I can.

    pmap still won't recognize them as shm segments (different block device
    minor number) but otherwise they are now presented identically with
    normal shm segments.
