Yes, the LTP contains the tests (last comment is the final test for
arm32, right before Jan tests i686).

Fixing MAX_LFS_FILESIZE fixes the new limit for mmap() brought by
those 2 commits (file_mmap_size_max()).
offset tested by the LTP test is 0xfffffffe000.
file_mmap_size_max gives: 0xFFFFFFFF000 as max value, but only after
the mentioned patch.

Original intent for this fix was other though.
