Subject[131/136] NOMMU: Fix MAP_PRIVATE mmap() of objects where the data can be mapped directly
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

commit 645d83c5db970a1c57225e155113b4aa2451e920 upstream.

Fix MAP_PRIVATE mmap() of files and devices where the data in the backing store
might be mapped directly. Use the BDI_CAP_MAP_DIRECT capability flag to govern
whether or not we should be trying to map a file directly. This can be used to
determine whether or not a region has been filled in at the point where we call
do_mmap_shared() or do_mmap_private().

The BDI_CAP_MAP_DIRECT capability flag is cleared by validate_mmap_request() if
there's any reason we can't use it. It's also cleared in do_mmap_pgoff() if
f_op->get_unmapped_area() fails.

Without this fix, attempting to run a program from a RomFS image on a
non-mappable MTD partition results in a BUG as the kernel attempts XIP, and
this can be caught in gdb:
