[PATCH] NOMMU: Set BDI capabilities for /dev/mem and /dev/kmem
David Howells [Wed, 27 Sep 2006 08:50:16 +0000 (01:50 -0700)]
Set the backing device info capabilities for /dev/mem and /dev/kmem to
permit direct sharing under no-MMU conditions and full mapping capabilities
under MMU conditions.  Make the BDI used by these available to all directly
mappable character devices.

Also comment the capabilities for /dev/zero.
