[PATCH 03/11] unpaged: sound nopage get_page

From: Hugh Dickins
Date: Thu Nov 17 2005 - 14:32:44 EST

Something noticed when studying use of VM_RESERVED in different drivers:
snd_usX2Y_hwdep_pcm_vm_nopage omitted to get_page: fixed.

And how did this work before? Aargh! That nopage is returning a page
from within a buffer allocated by snd_malloc_pages, which allocates a
high-order page, then does SetPageReserved on each 0-order page within.

That would have worked in 2.6.14, because when the area was unmapped,
PageReserved inhibited put_page. 2.6.15-rc1 removed that inhibition
(while leaving ineffective PageReserveds around for now), but it hasn't
caused trouble because.. we've not been freeing from VM_RESERVED at all.
