OK, patch looks and works correct.  Will queue this change up for RHEL3-U6 since
U5 is already frozen.

Hello, Zhang.  Could you please explain what problem occurs when
the block size for hugetlbfs is reported as PAGE_CACHE_SIZE?

Comment 4 Zhang Yanmin 2005-05-12 01:00:17 UTC
Currently, I can't find problems except it might mislead applications.

Comment 5 Larry Woodman 2005-07-13 19:16:57 UTC
Patch was rejected by Ret Hat engineering.
