Ok, I tested the vmaops too and it also worked as expected. I think you could 
merge rtdm_mmap and related stuff to mainline RTDM. Thank you for your 
precious work. Unfortunately you'll need to wait a while until I test them on 
the real video driver. I had to stop working on it for writing the article. 
When I finish the article I'll test them on real hardware but I see no 
reasons for not working...
