    | Hmm.. Ok, perhaps it is so. It just isn't obvious.

    The down side is that where write() returns status, mmap() gives you a
    segmentation fault or bus error if the write failed for any reason
    (like, the disk got full). Also, there's no analog to fsync() to make
    sure that the data has actually hit stable storage.
