Bug#533708: ITP: libhugetlbfs -- Tools and Library access huge pages of memory
Hello Christopher and all,
This ITP was stalled, so I packaged this tool. I am looking for one or
more co-maintainer (read more at the bottom).

Description : Tools and Library access huge pages of memory
Description: A library which provides access to huge pages of memory
libhugetlbfs is a library which provides easy access to huge pages of
memory. It is a wrapper for the hugetlbfs file system. Applications
can use huge pages to fulfill malloc() requests without being
recompiled by using LD_PRELOAD. Alternatively, applications can be
linked against libhugetlbfs without source modifications to load BSS
or BSS, data, and text segments into large pages.
Description: A set of tools to configure huge pages of memory
This package contains a number of utilities that will help administrate
the use of huge pages on your system. hugeedit modifies binaries to
set default segment remapping behavior. hugectl sets environment
variables for using huge pages and then execs the target program.
hugeadm gives easy access to huge page pool size control. pagesize
lists page sizes available on the machine.

I am looking for a co-maintainer for this package. There are two reasons
for that: 1) I can't write C, well not really. 2) I believe that every
package should be co-maintained (in a perfect world anyway).
You should be prepared to handle all the aspects of the packaging which
are specific to C and/or library handling. I can help for other aspects
of packaging, bug handling, backporting patches, etc...
