Subject[PATCH] rmap 29 VM_RESERVED safety
From: Andrea Arcangeli <andrea@suse.de>

Set VM_RESERVED in videobuf_mmap_mapper, to warn do_no_page and swapout
not to worry about its pages. Set VM_RESERVED in ia64_elf32_init, it
too provides an unusual nopage which might surprise higher level checks.
Future safety: they don't actually pose a problem in this current tree.
