Subject[patch 30/59] Revert "[PATCH] Fix up mmap_kmem"
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@woody.linux-foundation.org>

This reverts commit 99a10a60ba9bedcf5d70ef81414d3e03816afa3f.

As per Hugh Dickins:

"Nadia Derbey has reported that mmap of /dev/kmem no longer works with
the kernel virtual address as offset, and Franck has confirmed that
his patch came from a misunderstanding of what an offset means to
/dev/kmem - whereas his patch description seems to say that he was
correcting the offset on a few plaforms, there was no such problem to
correct, and his patch was in fact changing its API on all platforms."
