Cyrill, please read the last email I sent you in another (private) discussion.
Most probably you should throw out some tests which assume the kernel has the
stack-guard-page hack, it was replaced by the stack-guard-hole hack ;)

I guess this works? I mean, *p-- = 'c' should not fail...

OK, now we need to expand the stack. This can fail or not. This depends on
whether this vma (created by mmap(MAP_GROWSDOWN) has a stack_guard_gap hole
between its ->vm_prev.

No. a MAP_GROWSDOWN area should grow automatically. Unless the hole between
vm_prev becomes less than stack_guard_gap.

This is the whole point of guard hole, or guard page we had before. Just the
previous implementation was not accurate, that is why criu had to have some
hacks to workaround.

It no longer needs to know about guard hole/page/whatever. Just remove
(conditionalize) all the MAP_GROWSDOWN code. Except, of course, you still
need to record MAP_GROWSDOWN in vma_area->e->flags (_vmflag_match), in order
to restore this vma correctly.

Oleg.
