commit 1283c478aa0a9b3d84320db5745a61b7f61b360c
Author: Joseph Myers <>
Date:   Fri Nov 23 17:53:50 2018 +0000

    Fix Arm __ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE (bug 23915).
    The generic kernel-features.h defines __ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE for 4.5
    and later kernels.  However, for 32-bit Arm binaries running on 64-bit
    Arm kernels, the syscall was only wired up in the 4.7 kernel, although
    the 32-bit Arm kernel had the syscall from 4.5 onwards.  This patch
    corrects the Arm kernel-features.h to undefine the macro for
    configured minimum kernel versions before 4.7.
    Tested (compilation only) with a build for
    	[BZ #23915]
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/arm/kernel-features.h
