Does that mean that this is a solution for you, Brian? If the
MEM_TOP_DOWN problem is just allocating memory in a place that an app
isn't prepared to deal with that seems like a lurking problem with the
app, anyway, since even without MEM_TOP_DOWN there is no guarantee that
the address from mmap will not show up in a problematic range of memory.
