Hello Thomas,

Only PowerPC's fb_pgprotect() needs the file argument, although
the implementation does not use it. Pass NULL to the internal

Can you please mention the function that's the implementation for


PowerPC ? If I'm looking at the code correctly, that function is
phys_mem_access_prot() defined in the arch/powerpc/mm/mem.c file:

pgprot_t phys_mem_access_prot(struct file *file, unsigned long pfn,
			      unsigned long size, pgprot_t vma_prot)
	if (ppc_md.phys_mem_access_prot)
		return ppc_md.phys_mem_access_prot(file, pfn, size, vma_prot);

	if (!page_is_ram(pfn))
		vma_prot = pgprot_noncached(vma_prot);

	return vma_prot;

and if set, ppc_md.phys_mem_access_prot is pci_phys_mem_access_prot()
that is defined in the arch/powerpc/kernel/pci-common.c source file:

Yes, that's correct. The only value for that function pointer appears to be pci_phys_mem_access_prot()

That function indeed doesn't use the file argument. So your patch looks
correct to me.
