The idea was to not impact all the architectures as arch_unmap(),
arch_dup_mmap() or arch_exit_mmap() implies.

I look at the headers where such a dummy arch_remap could be put but I
can't figure out one which will not impact all the architecture.
What about defining a dummy service earlier in mm/remap.c in the case
__HAVE_ARCH_REMAP is not defined ?
Something like :
#ifndef __HAVE_ARCH_REMAP
static inline void void arch_remap(struct mm_struct *mm,
unsigned long old_start,
unsigned long old_end,
unsigned long new_start,
unsigned long new_end)
{
}
#endif

Nice catch ;)

Thanks,
