[PATCH] uml: hostfs - fix possible PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT overflows
Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Thu, 29 Dec 2005 16:39:57 +0000 (17:39 +0100)]
Prevent page->index << PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT from overflowing.

There is a casting there, but was added without care, so it's at the wrong
place. Note the extra parens around the shift - "+" is higher precedence than
"<<", leading to a GCC warning which saved all us.
