    Nop, seems like it is hugetlb bug fixed by Adam
    commit 516dffdcd8827a40532798602830dfcfc672294c
    [PATCH] Fix get_unmapped_area and fsync for hugetlb shm segments
    I've disregard it thoughtlessly so Adam marks it specific for powerpc/ia64.
    (hmm.. i donno realy why, huge pages should be alined anyway and if i
    understend it correctly it may not be if is_file_hugepages() fails)

    As of "junk" just before the BUG this again IIUC because o-direct staff
    catches this issue before hugetlb.

    Yep, it is.
