[PATCH] Fix mmap2 syscall for ColdFire


This patch fixes mmap2 syscall on ColdFire systems.

M68K linux port expects the argument of mmap2 syscall to be counted in the memory pages. ColdFire has a non-standard page size of 8K, which libc is not yet aware of. The patch defines the MMAP2_PAGE_SHIFT macro to fix that.
