I didn't know we were adding hashes to git sources, it's bad for a 
couple of reasons.

Yeah, that's what happens when you move a backport into current and 
you're still ill/running a fever.
And it should also belong in System apps rather than Hardware.

I don't think that's correct, it may work, but the madvise manpages says 
that only sys/mman.h is required.
The MADV_ defines in uclibc are in bits/mman.h, like on glibc and musl, 
so basically they're incomplete/old and a patch to uclibc would be the 
correct way to fix this.

Yes, but only for x86, whatever that means (ARCH_HAS_FRAMEBUFFER).
Fixed, though only build tested.
I'll send v2 shortly.
