There are more bugs, like in mm/swapfile.c:unuse_pte(), where a page
struct ptr is used as an argument to MAP_NR. :(
I tried to update the m68k kernel to 2.3.23 during the weekend and gave up
because of the mess. Why the hell has pte_page() a different meaning now,
but still the same name (without a single comment)?
I'm wondering how that works at all... :(
