cuse: implement mmap/munmap

Message-ID:  <>
Archive-link:  Article

These patches implement mmap support for CUSE (character device in userspace).

The immediate application for this is to get old games requiring OSS/mmap
support to work with OSS Proxy, written by Tejun.  So firstly this is a call for
testers; please try this out and report any problems.

Three pieces are needed:

  git:// for-next

  git:// master

  git:// master

Comments about the interface and implementation in general (not related to OSS
proxy) are very welcome as well.
