Description Clement Calmels 2008-08-13 06:39:11 UTC
Latest working kernel version:
Earliest failing kernel version:
Distribution: Sles 10 SP 1
Hardware Environment: HP Proliant DL140

Problem Description:

I wrote a simple test that use mmap64 to map a file (/dev/zero) with an offset value of 0x100000000. When I check /proc/self/maps the offset value reported is 00000000. The issue is in fs/proc/task_mmu.c function 'show_map' where 'seq_printf' use the %lx converter to print a (long * PAGE_SIZE) value.
In my case the offset is 0x100000000 (long long) and the pgoffset is 0x100000 (long).

Steps to reproduce:

I will attach the test I wrote (compile line: $ gcc -O2 -g -Wall mmap64.c -o mmap64) and a patch that seems to correct this issue.

gcc -g -Wall -O2 src/mmap64.c -o mmap64

Result on a 2.6.26:
$ ./mmap64
offset = 100000000
