That's to allow only offset to be passed, mapping length is less than 4Gb.
I have verified all list of mmap for sockets and all of them contain dummy
cb sock_no_mmap() except the following:

xsk_mmap()
tcp_mmap()
packet_mmap()

xsk_mmap() - it's what this fix is needed for.
tcp_mmap() - doesn't have obvious issues with pgoff - no any references on it.
packet_mmap() - return -EINVAL if it's even set.

It should go to linux-next, no one has been using it till this patch
with 32 bits as w/o this fix af_xdp sockets can't be used at all.
It unblocks af_xdp socket usage for 32bit systems.


That's example of potential next commit message:
Subject: mm: mmap: increase sockets maximum memory size pgoff for 32bits

The AF_XDP sockets umem mapping interface uses XDP_UMEM_PGOFF_FILL_RING
and XDP_UMEM_PGOFF_COMPLETION_RING offsets. These offsets are established
already and are part of the configuration interface.

But for 32-bit systems, using AF_XDP socket configuration, these values
are too large to pass the maximum allowed file size verification. The
offsets can be tuned off, but instead of changing the existing interface,
let's extend the max allowed file size for sockets.

No one has been using it till this patch with 32 bits as w/o this fix
af_xdp sockets can't be used at all, so it unblocks af_xdp socket usage
for 32bit systems.

All list of mmap cbs for sockets were verified on side effects and
all of them contain dummy cb - sock_no_mmap() at this moment, except the
following:

xsk_mmap() - it's what this fix is needed for.
tcp_mmap() - doesn't have obvious issues with pgoff - no any references on it.
packet_mmap() - return -EINVAL if it's even set.




Is it ok to be replicated in PATCH v2 or this explanation is enough here
to use v1?
