the problem with all 32bit unmapped segments is their limitations in
size. But there is always room to try to use unmapped and fall back
to mapped, if it doesn't work. But I doubt anybody is going to
implement that.

kernel flushes all caches on startup, so there shouldn't be a problem.


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a
good idea.                                                [ RFC1925, 2.3 ]
