Do I understand correctly that with this patch a user space program
no longer be able to place two mappings back to back? If it is so,
it will likely break a lot of things; for example, it's a common ring
buffer implementations technique, to map buffer memory twice back
to back in order to avoid special handling of items wrapping its end.
