It indeed is because of shortage of non-high flag. 0x00000800 is the only non-high flag available and I am inclined to
leave that last flag for more fundamental features. Then again if we want to move hugetlbfs page table sharing code over
to mshare base code, it might be necessary to consume that last flag. Nevertheless, mshare code should not break if
high-vma flags are not available. I definitely need to fix that.
