Unfortunately, the map_at_zero sysctl didn't work for me.  The
following massage still recorded in dmesg.

> linux: pid 1378 (acroread): syscall inotify_init not implemented

I set the sysctl variable just before the kernel boot.  After loading
kernel and modules and before booting the kernel, escape to the
command line mode of the loader, and type set
security.bsd.map_at_zero=1, then boot.

Something wrong?
