Size and video->queue.buf_size is not the 100% same size (off by a few
bytes < pagesize), I think it's because on NOMMU the kernel calls
kmalloc() to allocate the buffer, not get_free_page().

mmap on NOMMU is a bit tricky and very restricted.
In case user does a MAP_SHARED with some combination of the PROT_###
Flags the mmap fails. What's allowed and what's not is documented in
documentation/nommu-mmap.txt
Setting VM_MAYSHARE allows user MAP_PRIVATE mappings.
