BTW, another missing thing is an analog of commit 9b61a4 (ARM: prevent
VM_GROWSDOWN mmaps extending below FIRST_USER_ADDRESS); I'm not sure why
does unicore32 have FIRST_USER_ADDRESS set to PAGE_SIZE (some no-MMU
arm variants really need that, what with the vectors page living at
address 0 on those), but since you have it set that way, you'd probably
better not allow a mapping to grow down there...
