pull in new MADV_DONTDUMP flag for madvise system call
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:57:31 EST
Description of problem:
I'm adding support for 'MADV_DONTDUMP' to the qemu-kvm package for 6.4, in order to support a mode in which guest memory is not included in a core dump - see bz #859447. I've posted patches adding 'MADV_DONTDUMP' to the kernel for 6.4. I would like to see these headers pulled into glibc for 6.4, so that I can make use of them. I also need these updated glibc headers pulled into the build root for 6.4. Thanks.
Try using 'MADV_DONTDUMP' and it is not defined.

Potential patch, untested
No objections from me. Note that PM & QE will have to sign off for this to get into 6.4 though.
