Description Jan F. Chadima 2010-05-27 09:32:13 UTC
Description of problem:

The man page for mmap64 shows info about mmap2 call not the mmap64.
the mmap2 does not exist in the system, the mmap64 exists.

new mmap manual page

I recommend  update the mmap man page and move the mmap64 reference from mmap2 to mmap
