Bug#1989: mmap bug?
The sources I'm using form libdb contain a patch that says:
+ * The Linux kernel mmap() semantics are broken :
+ * Under Linux, read only private mappings cause write only and read/write
+ * opens to fail with errno=ETXTBSY. Shared read only mappings should work
+ * fine though, but I'm not familiar enough with the code to ascertain that
+ * a MAP_SHARED mapping would be safe so I use the non-mmap'd version
+ * instead.
I'd like to remove this patch if it is not needed anymore.
