Linux uses more than 2GB address space on x86_64. I'd like to hear what
address arrange other x86_64 ELF OSes use. If they only use from 0
to 2GB for all applications, they don't have this issue.

I'd like to see what other OSes do. These are generic psABI problems.
I would love to hear solutions for them.
