Subject[ 02/46] s390/compat: fix mmap compat system calls
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.5-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

commit e85871218513c54f7dfdb6009043cb638f2fecbe upstream.

The native 31 bit and the compat behaviour for the mmap system calls differ:

In native 31 bit mode the passed in address for the mmap system call will be
unmodified passed to sys_mmap_pgoff().
In compat mode however the passed in address will be modified with
compat_ptr() which masks out the most significant bit.

The result is that in native 31 bit mode each mmap request (with MAP_FIXED)
will fail where the most significat bit is set, while in compat mode it
may succeed.

This odd behaviour was introduced with d3815898 "[S390] mmap: add missing
compat_ptr conversion to both mmap compat syscalls".

To restore a consistent behaviour accross native and compat mode this
patch functionally reverts the above mentioned commit.
