[PATCH 04/14] Always expose MAP_UNINITIALIZED to userspace

From: Palmer Dabbelt
Date: Mon Nov 09 2015 - 20:37:18 EST

This used to be hidden behind CONFIG_MMAP_ALLOW_UNINITIALIZED, so
userspace wouldn't actually ever see it be non-zero. While I had
originally hoped to avoid hiding it, it looks like this conflicts with
MAP_HUGE_SHIFT so I think it's safer to just keep this 0.

Architectures that want to define this can still override it. In
fact, the Xtensa port already overrides it in a very similar manner to
the previously broken one (but due to lots of conflicting opinions on
how to solve this correctly, I'm just taking the easy way out and
letting their arch maintainers deal with it -- sorry).
