Yes, for sure. I had seen this part of the code but, to be honest, had
not understood the meaning of this computation.

Thanks for the explanation! Reducing reserved space for data segment
seems to work.
But there is still something I don't understand : on the Linux machine
where I ran my test program, the current RLIMIT_DATA is set to
0xffffffff/0xffffffff and I can manage to mmap at address 0x20000000. If
I set the same limit on FreeBSD, I won't get the mapping at 0x20000000.
So, there *is* a difference of behaviour between the two systems, but I
don't understand why.
Thanks to both of you,
