supposes to enable more than 64 MB memory, but only 64MB memory
can be accessed regardless how many memory detected by kernel.
# dmesg | grep mem
real memory = 134217728 (131072K bytes)
Physical memory hole(s):
avail memory = 127311872 (124328K bytes)
mem-test [S20-1] : no enough core available for inbuf -> 1H x 6000000H = 100663296; Error<12> Cannot allocate memory
The error is returned because you hit the process resource limit, not
because the system didn't have enough memory.
datasize 131072 kbytes
Malloc is kind of strange when it comes to allocating the virtual address
space and will consume up to twice the amount requested. If you want to malloc
more than 64MB, you'll need to further increase the data limit.
