mm: re-architect the VM_UNPAGED logic
This replaces the (in my opinion horrible) VM_UNMAPPED logic with very explicit support for a "remapped page range" aka VM_PFNMAP. It allows a VM area to contain an arbitrary range of page table entries that the VM never touches, and never considers to be normal pages. Any user of "remap_pfn_range()" automatically gets this new functionality, and doesn't even have to mark the pages reserved or indeed mark them any other way. It just works. As a side effect, doing mmap() on /dev/mem works for arbitrary ranges. Sparc update from David in the next commit. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
