[PATCH 2/4] arm: Use generic mmap top-down layout

Alexandre Ghiti alex at ghiti.fr
Fri Mar 22 00:42:23 PDT 2019


arm uses a top-down layout by default that fits the generic functions.
At the same time, this commit allows to fix the following problems:

- one uncovered and not fixed for arm here:
https://www.mail-archive.com/linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org/msg1429066.html

- the use of TASK_SIZE instead of STACK_TOP in mmap_base which, when
  address space of a task is 26 bits, would assign mmap base way too high.
