With Cyrus imapd, especially within the Kolab Server we saw file corruptions which could be related to mmap problems. It occurrs rarely enough that we do not have a testcase. Details at kolab/issue840. So I would welcome patches for older kernels and referable information on how long this bug has been in there.

it seems that this bug has been in the kernel since at least the 2.5 timeframe, the change in 2.6.19 just made it far easier to hit.
