Subject[PATCH 2/19] UML - Fix static binary segfault
Date
From
When UML is built as a static binary, it segfaults when run.  The
reason is that a memory hole that is present in dynamic binaries isn't
there in static binaries, and it contains essential stuff.

This fix removes the code which maps some anonymous memory into that
hole and cleans up some related code.
