I would hardly say that disabling a feature should be classified as "works". 

"works" would be re-writing packet/af_packet.c:packet_mmap() so it doesn't use 
vm_insert_page (which I think is the major/only problem) or putting some 
proper #ifdef MMU to get the intended functionality.

David - I know you have been reworking the noMMU vma handling - is there a 
solution to vm_insert_page?
