      [PATCH] Fix get_unmapped_area and fsync for hugetlb shm segments · 516dffdc

      This patch provides the following hugetlb-related fixes to the recent stacked
      shm files changes:
       - Update is_file_hugepages() so it will reconize hugetlb shm segments.
       - get_unmapped_area must be called with the nested file struct to handle
         the sfd->file->f_ops->get_unmapped_area == NULL case.
       - The fsync f_op must be wrapped since it is specified in the hugetlbfs
         f_ops.
      
      This is based on proposed fixes from Eric Biederman that were debugged and
      tested by me.  Without it, attempting to use hugetlb shared memory segments
      on powerpc (and likely ia64) will kill your box.
