The changes I made back then weren't that complicated, but I'm not sure they
actually helped the software I was working on run or not. I found out later
that software worked fine with or without mmap2, but worked slightly faster
with it. I don't have a copy of the patches I made back then either. I might be
able to get a copy of the 4.9 source and make a patch there without testing it
if you're interested. If you have any knowledge of C, however, it wouldn't be
that hard to duplicate the changes that were made in -CURRENT.
