    Subject[patch 18/88] x86, PAT, PCI: Change vma prot in pci_mmap to reflect inherited prot
    2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Venkatesh Pallipadi <>

    upstream commit: 9cdec049389ce2c324fd1ec508a71528a27d4a07

    While looking at the issue in the thread:

    noticed a bug in pci PAT code and memory type setting.

    PCI mmap code did not set the proper protection in vma, when it
    inherited protection in reserve_memtype. This bug only affects
    the case where there exists a WC mapping before X does an mmap
    with /proc or /sys pci interface. This will cause X userlevel
    mmap from /proc or /sysfs to fail on fork.
