Subject[PATCH 3.16 25/63] arm64: fix COMPAT_SHMLBA definition for large pages
3.16.81-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Yury Norov <>

commit b9b7aebb42d1b1392f3111de61136bb6cf3aae3f upstream.

ARM glibc uses (4 * __getpagesize()) for SHMLBA, which is correct for
4KB pages and works fine for 64KB pages, but the kernel uses a hardcoded
16KB that is too small for 64KB page based kernels. This changes the
definition to what user space sees when using 64KB pages.
