Actually I am favoring returning EOPNOTSUPP instead of ENODEV.  The ENODEV
behavior is specific POSIXism for mmap, while EOPNOTSUPP is the generic
Hurd protocol for any RPC that a server doesn't support.  I'm already
putting in the libc change to have mmap translate to ENODEV.

Yes.  Follow the coding conventions you see, and make a good log entry for
each and every change.  No change ever goes in without a log entry.

bug-hurd is fine.  If you get no response for a while, you can bug
individuals about merging your patch.
