SubjectRe: converting unicore32 to gate vma as done for arm (was Re: [PATCH] mm: cache largest vma)
The patch is ok for unicore32. Thanks Al.

While testing this patch, a bug is found in arch/unicore32/include/asm/pgtable.h:

@@ -96,7 +96,7 @@ extern pgprot_t pgprot_kernel;
| PTE_EXEC)
#define PAGE_READONLY __pgprot(pgprot_val(pgprot_user | PTE_READ)
#define PAGE_READONLY_EXEC __pgprot(pgprot_val(pgprot_user | PTE_READ \
- | PTE_EXEC)
+ | PTE_EXEC))

In fact, all similar macros are wrong. I'll post an bug-fix patch for this obvious error.
