Subject[PATCH v4 03/12] mm: Reserve asm-generic prot flag 0x10 for arch use
From: Dave Martin <>

The asm-generic mman definitions are used by a few architectures
that also define an arch-specific PROT flag with value 0x10. This
currently applies to sparc and powerpc, and arm64 will soon join

To help future maintainers, document the use of this flag in the
asm-generic header too.
