I've gone and audited the call sites and cleaned this up a bit.

That was somewhat intentional with the idea that if we have a problem in
the middle of a large unmap we should attempt to complete the unmap.
But, I've changed my mind. If we have any kind of validity issue, we
should just SIGSEGV and not attempt to keep unmapping things. I've
updated the patch.
