[PATCH] Fix get_unmapped_area and fsync for hugetlb shm segments
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.
