    SubjectRe: MADV_SPACEAVAIL and MADV_FREE in pre2-3
       From: Andreas Jaeger <>
    Date: 17 Mar 2000 12:05:04 +0100

    pre2-3 defines MADV_SPACEAVAIL in asm-alpha/mman.h and MADV_FREE in

    These defines are not used anywhere else in the kernel - and therefore
    the madvise function will return EINVAL for these defines.

    Is this really desired?

    They are values provided by OSF and Solaris respectively.

    If this makes for a big issue wrt. glibc we could move them to
    the OSF/Solaris emulation code on Alpha and Sparc but I think
    this would be really silly and would like to not have to do this.
