      [PATCH] Don't force O_LARGEFILE for 32 bit processes on ia64 · ef3daeda
      Yoav Zach authored
      
      
      In ia64 kernel, the O_LARGEFILE flag is forced when opening a file.  This
      is problematic for execution of 32 bit processes, which are not largefile
      aware, either by SW emulation or by HW execution.
      
      For such processes, the problem is two-fold:
      
      1) When trying to open a file that is larger than 4G
         the operation should fail, but it's not
      2) Writing to offset larger than 4G should fail, but
         it's not
      
      The proposed patch takes advantage of the way 32 bit processes are
      identified in ia64 systems.  Such processes have PER_LINUX32 for their
      personality.  With the patch, the ia64 kernel will not enforce the
      O_LARGEFILE flag if the current process has PER_LINUX32 set.  The behavior
      for all other architectures remains unchanged.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
