[PATCH] Add mm->task_size and fix powerpc vdso
This patch adds mm->task_size to keep track of the task size of a given mm and uses that to fix the powerpc vdso so that it uses the mm task size to decide what pages to fault in instead of the current thread flags (which broke when ptracing). (akpm: I expect that mm_struct.task_size will become the way in which we finally sort out the confusion between 32-bit processes and 32-bit mm's. It may need tweaks, but at this stage this patch is powerpc-only.) Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
