arch_rebalance_pgtables call
Martin Schwidefsky [Tue, 5 Feb 2008 06:29:16 +0000 (22:29 -0800)]
In order to change the layout of the page tables after an mmap has crossed the
adress space limit of the current page table layout a architecture hook in
get_unmapped_area is needed.  The arguments are the address of the new mapping
and the length of it.
