That's a good start, just to get something to work with. How this fits in
with the vm code and whether it is ultimately suitable in the long run is
probably up to Alan Cox. For now, just get something that (a) doesn't break
anything else; and (b) lets Wine behave the way it needs to.

AFAIK, there are still pthread issues with Wine, but those can't be addressed
until the mmap issue has a work-around.
