Same on HP-UX 10. If the mmap() is done before the fork, the region
is shared among processes. So it's close to shm.

The man page specifies:
If MAP_ANONYMOUS is set in flags:
+ A new memory region is created and initialized to all
This memory region can be shared only with descendants
of the current process.
