    Patch in this message
    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

    - 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.
