00023 /* Map addresses starting near ADDR and extending for LEN bytes.  from
00024    OFFSET into the file FD describes according to PROT and FLAGS.  If ADDR
00025    is nonzero, it is the desired mapping address.  If the MAP_FIXED bit is
00026    set in FLAGS, the mapping will be at ADDR exactly (which must be
00027    page-aligned); otherwise the system chooses a convenient nearby address.
00028    The return value is the actual mapping address chosen or MAP_FAILED
00029    for errors (in which case `errno' is set).  A successful `mmap' call
00030    deallocates any previous mapping for the affected region.  */
