Subject[PATCH v2][RFC] add MAP_UNLOCKED mmap flag
If application does mlockall(MCL_FUTURE) it is no longer possible to
mmap file bigger than main memory or allocate big area of anonymous
memory. Sometimes it is desirable to lock everything related to program
execution into memory, but still be able to mmap big file or allocate
huge amount of memory and allow OS to swap them on demand. MAP_UNLOCKED
allows to do that.
