This all looks ok to me. I think there may be some room for cleanup
and bikeshedding later (the "ksys_mmap_pgoff()" name made me go "that
sounds more like a real helper than a kernel syscall", for example),
but on the whole I think it's best to start with this kind of fairly
In fact, because it all looks *so* mechanical, I'd even be willing to
just pull this into 4.16, if that makes the real work that this
depends on easier?
Anyway, ack from me, qith the only question being how you want to
handle the patches. Direct pull request to me, go through the -mm
tree, or just keep them in your own git tree and then build upon it
and send it all later?
