This can only be raised (above the hard limit) by a privileged process,
so I would be out of luck there, as I could not convince my sysadmins
to raise this further.

Anyway, I don't really care anymore, I use my own, patched mmap module
since I filed this bug. I don't quite understand why this module made
an attempt to convert a simple mmap() to something more complex, with
hidden state and resize() methods and whatnot :) - but it has been done,
and I understand that you have to maintain backwards compatibility.

Still, it would be nice if there was some way to get the result of a
plain and simple mmap() as a buffer.

Meanwhile, I will just use my own module, so feel free to close this if
you feel like it :)
