Subject[PATCH 1/3] procfs: fix unintended truncation of returned mapped address
Currently, proc_reg_get_unmapped_area truncates upper 32-bit of the
mapped virtual address returned from get_unmapped_area method in
pde->proc_fops due to the variable rv of signed integer on
x86_64. This is too small to have vitual address of unsigned long on
x86_64 since on x86_64, signed integer is of 4 bytes while unsigned
long is of 8 bytes. To fix this issue, use unsigned long instead.
