SubjectNon-GPL export of invalidate_mmap_range
Hello, Andrew,

The attached patch to make invalidate_mmap_range() non-GPL exported
seems to have been lost somewhere between 2.6.1-mm4 and 2.6.1-mm5.
It still applies cleanly. Could you please take it up again?

Thanx, Paul

It was EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(), however IBM's GPFS is not GPL.

- the GPFS team contributed to the testing and development of
invaldiate_mmap_range().

- GPFS was developed under AIX and was ported to Linux, and hence meets
Linus's "some binary modules are OK" exemption.

- The export makes sense: clustering filesystems need it for shootdowns to
ensure cache coherency.
