  Modified files:
    lib/libc/sys         mmap.2 
  Document that the documented 2GB mmap limit is actually a
  documentation bug.  We switched to page indexes some time around
  FreeBSD 2.2.  The actual 'len' limit is the maximum file size or what
  will fit in your address space, whichever comes first.  It should be
  possible to make 1TB files on 32 bit systems, but of course address space
  runs out long before then.
