[patch 3/5] ia64: allow WB /sys/.../legacy_mem mmaps

From: Bjorn Helgaas <bjorn.helgaas_at_hp.com>
Date: 2007-03-22 09:21:49
Allow cacheable mmaps of legacy_mem if WB access is supported for the region.
The "legacy_mem" file often contains a shadow option ROM, and some versions of
X depend on this.

Tim Yamin <plasm@roo.me.uk> reported that this change fixes X on a Dell
PowerEdge 3250.
