[PATCH 5/6] mremap check map_count
From: Hugh Dickins
Date: Tue Mar 30 2004 - 17:55:40 EST
mremap's move_vma should think ahead to lessen the chance of failure
during its rewind on failure: running out of memory always possible,
but it's silly for it to embark when it's near the map_count limit.
Note: -mm tree needs sysctl_max_map_count in place of MAX_MAP_COUNT.
