Could somebody with an Alpha close at hand do me a big favor and test
the attached patch? It moves the load address of the dynamic linker
from the bogus fixed address "2L*MAXDSIZ" to whereever a userland
mmap(0, ...) call would have put it. It should have no noticeable
affect on your system, except maybe if you look at "/proc/<pid>/map".
The patch solves a problem for large-memory i386 configurations.
I'd like to commit it ASAP, but it would be nice to confirm first
that I didn't break Alphas.
Thanks in advance,
