Do you mean that this code under Solaris

size = 1048576
guess = mmap (NULL, size, PROT_NONE,
munmap (guess, size);
addr = mmap (guess+4096, size-4096, PROT_NONE,
printf ("%x %x\n", guess, addr);

gives the same address for both guess and size?  That is, that Solaris completely
ignores the first argument unless MAP_FIXED is given?

If so, my idea is useless at least under Solaris.  But if not, I don't see your point.
