You're right. Someone added that since I wrote the patch originally.
I owned them when originally submitted @) Thanks for catching.

Have to move my bits two up, which will still work, but limit the
maximum page size slightly more, but will likely still work for most

I'll send a new patch.

BTW seriously MAP_UNINITIALIZED? Who came up with that?
MAP_COMPLETELY_INSECURE or MAP_INSANE would have been more appropiate.
Maybe I should list as an advantage that my patch will prohibit
too many further such "innovations".
