[PATCH] freepgt: sys_mincore ignore FIRST_USER_PGD_NR
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:20 +0000 (13:29 -0700)]
Remove use of FIRST_USER_PGD_NR from sys_mincore: it's inconsistent (no other
syscall refers to it), unnecessary (sys_mincore loops over vmas further down)
and incorrect (misses user addresses in ARM's first pgd).
