Name        : libhugetlbfs
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.6

Summary     : A library which provides easy access to huge pages of memory
Description :
libhugetlbfs is a library which provides easy access to huge pages of memory.
It is a wrapper for the hugetlbfs file system. Applications can use huge pages
to fulfill malloc() requests without being recompiled by using LD_PRELOAD.
Alternatively, applications can be linked against libhugetlbfs without source
modifications to load BSS or BSS, data, and text segments into large pages.
