    Subject[12/35] shmem: let shared anonymous be nonlinear again
    2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    From: Hugh Dickins <hughd@google.com>

    commit bee4c36a5cf5c9f63ce1d7372aa62045fbd16d47 upstream.

    Up to 2.6.22, you could use remap_file_pages(2) on a tmpfs file or a
    shared mapping of /dev/zero or a shared anonymous mapping. In 2.6.23 we
    disabled it by default, but set VM_CAN_NONLINEAR to enable it on safe
    mappings. We made sure to set it in shmem_mmap() for tmpfs files, but
    missed it in shmem_zero_setup() for the others. Fix that at last.
