[RFC PATCH 0/2] Fix up the NFS mmap code

From: Trond Myklebust
Date: Fri Jan 08 2010 - 20:06:55 EST

How about something like the following. I chose to wrap the call to
do_mmap_pgoff() instead of making a special ->pre_mmap(), since that
seems more consistent with the way we handle ->read() and ->write().

I also left sys_uselib() and do_execve() to rely on revalidate at
open(), since executables and libraries really are not ever expected to
change while open.

NFS: Fix a potential deadlock in nfs_file_mmap()
VFS: Add a mmap_file() callback to struct file_operations
