    SubjectRe: 64-bit shm: abi problems

    Yes I see someone thought it would be a keen idea to
    change shm_segsz to size_t from int. Why? I'm quite
    happy with a 2G limit; you should have been using mmap
    well before that anyway.

    mmap() still doesn't support anonymous SHARED+WRITE, which is why
    people want sysv/ipv SHM.
