Subject/proc/pid/maps containg anonymous maps that have PROT_NONE
Hi,

I noticed that there are (quite large) entries in /proc/pid/maps that
have PROT_NONE, right after an existing mapping:
7fffe4000000-7fffe406a000 rw-p 7fffe4000000 00:00 0
7fffe406a000-7fffe8000000 ---p 7fffe406a000 00:00 0
7ffff76d1000-7ffff76e0000 r-xp 00000000 09:03 260750
/lib/libbz2.so.1.0.4
7ffff76e0000-7ffff78df000 ---p 0000f000 09:03 260750
/lib/libbz2.so.1.0.4

I don't mind that 2Mb map, but what is 7fffe406a000-7fffe8000000 ---p ?
(63M)

Is it coming from glibc mapping memory as PROT_NONE, and using
mprotect/madvise to make it writable, and then
caching the mappings for future use, rather than freeing them?

/proc/pid/smaps shows:
7fffe406a000-7fffe8000000 ---p 7fffe406a000 00:00 0
Size: 65112 kB
Rss: 0 kB
Pss: 0 kB
Shared_Clean: 0 kB
Shared_Dirty: 0 kB
Private_Clean: 0 kB
Private_Dirty: 0 kB

I straced the program creating these, and I couldn't find anything with
7fffe406a000, but only before that address:

[pid 31928] madvise(0x7fffe4021000, 294912, 0x4 /* MADV_??? */) = 0
[pid 31928] madvise(0x7fffe4021000, 4096, 0x4 /* MADV_??? */) = 0

There is an mprotect and madvise that end at 0x7fffe406a000.
Those mprotects and madvise are coming from glibc. Its strange that I
don't see the mmap only the mprotect, but I used strace -f.

This happens on:
Linux debian 2.6.26-1-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Oct 9 14:16:53 UTC 2008 x86_64
GNU/Linux

strace is here:

Best regards,
--Edwin
