[PATCH] MIPS: Fix COW D-cache aliasing on fork
Provide a custom copy_user_highpage() to deal with aliasing issues on MIPS. It uses kmap_coherent() to map an user page for kernel with same color. Rewrite copy_to_user_page() and copy_from_user_page() with the new interfaces to avoid extra cache flushing. The main part of this patch was originally written by Ralf Baechle; Atushi Nemoto did the the debugging.
