[PATCH] mmap zero-length hugetlb file with PROT_NONE to protect a hugetlb virtual area
Sometimes, applications need below call to be successful although "/mnt/hugepages/file1" doesn't exist. fd = open("/mnt/hugepages/file1", O_CREAT|O_RDWR, 0755); *addr = mmap(NULL, 0x1024*1024*256, PROT_NONE, 0, fd, 0); As for regular pages (or files), above call does work, but as for huge pages, above call would fail because hugetlbfs_file_mmap would fail if (!(vma->vm_flags & VM_WRITE) && len > inode->i_size). This capability on huge page is useful on ia64 when the process wants to protect one area on region 4, so other threads couldn't read/write this area. A famous JVM (Java Virtual Machine) implementation on IA64 needs the capability.
