Funny, I remember that I could get the stack to change the sign of the address
with some largish allocations sometime around 1995 on an SLS / Slackware /
funet / tsx11 system.
(I used mmap for gcc.c-torture/execute/loop-2[ef].c because that
didn't require root privileges to raise the stack hard limit...)
