Subject[08/28] ramfs: fix memleak on no-mmu arch
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Bob Liu <lliubbo@gmail.com>

commit b836aec53e2bce71de1d5415313380688c851477 upstream.

On no-mmu arch, there is a memleak during shmem test. The cause of this
memleak is ramfs_nommu_expand_for_mapping() added page refcount to 2
which makes iput() can't free that pages.

The simple test file is like this:

int main(void)
{
int i;
key_t k = ftok("/etc", 42);
for ( i=0; i<100; ++i) {
int id = shmget(k, 10000, 0644|IPC_CREAT);
if (id == -1) {
printf("shmget error\n");
}
if(shmctl(id, IPC_RMID, NULL ) == -1) {
printf("shm rm error\n");
return -1;
}
}
printf("run ok...\n");
return 0;
}
And the result:

root:/> free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 60320 17912 42408 0 0
-/+ buffers: 17912 42408
root:/> shmem

root:/> free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 60320 20296 40024 0 0
-/+ buffers: 20296 40024
...

After this patch the test result is:(no memleak anymore)
