As I said before, the test is one that comes with gcc-4.0.2, it fails only on
Windows as far as I know. To answer your question: is just a test, it should
work with some Windows related tweaking but it's just a test.
Besides, what other memory is there available that a process has under its
control? Yes, I know, mmap() should be used w/o MAP_FIXED and let the OS choose
where to map, but the interesting part of this test is to use MAP_FIXED.
