    Do large numbers of entries hurt? I have an application that when
    running for a while ends up with over 2000 entries in /proc/$$/maps
    because of the way it works... that is paging is more efficient that
    the application swapping data out; so it continually grows until it
    can no longer at which point it falls back to using it's own poor
    LRU, typically means you get a single process of around 2.9GB.

    Everything appears to work... but it does seem a bit clunky that
    there are so many vma chunks.

    Perhaps the argument here is that glibc or the application should be
    fixed?
