SubjectRuntime library
I built libc-5.4.17 last night. Needed to modify linux/ipc.h ...
#include <asm/ipc.h>

This was to get symbol SHMAT.

In ../libc/sysdeps/linux/shmat.c there is a logical provision to include
this file if LINUX_VERSION_CODE > 131328. Don't know why it didn't

Anyway I am happy to report that the new malloc()/Free() in libc-5.4.17 DOES
return contiguous RAM to the kernel when free() is called. This was an
important fix. Anybody having trouble with memory "leaks" is advised to
re-link their possible "leakers" with the new library.
