As far as I remember nil virtual address has been there only to be sure the
vma allocated won't be merged with another vmas. Fore sure most of x86
standart application won't be using 8K address as well, so should do the
trick I think.

(Strictlly speaking the test should be rather parsing own maps first and
find unused address instead but whatever :)
