Restore shmid as inode# to fix /proc/pid/maps ABI breakage
shmid used to be stored as inode# for shared memory segments. Some of the proc-ps tools use this from /proc/pid/maps. Recent cleanups to newseg() changed it. This patch sets inode number back to shared memory id to fix breakage. Signed-off-by: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com> Cc: "Albert Cahalan" <acahalan@gmail.com> Cc: "Eric W.
