This change has been discussed at  in the context of refactoring fbdev's mmap code. The first three patches adapt PowerPC's internal interfaces to provide a phys_mem_access_prot() that works without struct file. Neither the architecture code or fbdev helpers need the parameter. Patch 4 replaces fbdev's fb_pgprotect() with fb_pgprot_device() on all architectures. The new helper with its stream-lined interface enables more refactoring within fbdev's mmap implementation.The content of this series is OK, but the way it's structured makes it a real headache to merge, because it's mostly powerpc changes and then a dependant cross architecture patch at the end. It would be simpler if patch 4 was first and just passed file=NULL to the powerpc helper, with an explanation that it's unused and will be dropped in a future cleanup. We could then put the first patch (previously patch 4) in a topic branch that is shared between the powerpc tree and the fbdev tree, and then the powerpc changes could be staged on top of that through the powerpc tree.
Ok, thanks for reviewing. The fbdev patch would go through the drm-misc tree as base for further refactoring.
I'll update the patchset accordingly. Best regards Thomas
