Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102325
glibc headers do not include ADDR_LIMIT_3GB define
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:57 EST
Description of problem:
/usr/include/linux/personality.h and /usr/src/linux/include/linux/personality.h
differ: the kernel version includes a new #define to describe 32-bit systems
with only 3 GB of addressable memory (called ADDR_LIMIT_3GB). The glibc
include files should match the kernel version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
FWIW this isn't in the Taroon kernel itself, either - I suppose it needs to get in there before
There are sound technical and business reasons to support the 3GB address limit,
so please add it to the Taroon kernel.
This is present in RHEL4 personality.h. If the functionality really is required
in a Taroon kernel update, please reopen a feature request through appropriate
channels, and we'll add the define to userspace personality.h if/when the kernel
starts to support it.
