That's just 400kB!

There's no way you should see corruption with that kind of value. It
should all stay solidly in the cache.

Is this perhaps with ARM nommu or something else strange? It may be that
the program just doesn't work at all if mmap() is faked out with a malloc
or similar.

Definitely a question for the ARM gurus. I'm out of my depth.
