Re: fork fails after nmap with hint address in an unmapped memory region

I used a temporary fix that may give you a hint.

hint_addr = hint_addr - hint_addr % getpagesize(); // temporary fix

I also used it in luajit, which uses a random hint_addr, and everything is fine.

               To be accurate, calling nmap with hint address in a unmapped memory
               region will cause all forks to fail with
               "fixup_mmaps_after_fork: ReadProcessMemory failed for MAP_PRIVATE
               address 0x6FFFFFE0000, Win32 error 299"
               There is a sample code below.

           You forgot to mention Cygwin version you're using, and please provide the
           sample as an attach to save people the copy-pasting issues.

       Cygwin version: 2.9.0
       OS: Windows 10
       Arch: 64bit
       The sample was also attached.

   Confirmed reproducible; addr2line does not give anything useful from the
   stackdump, but included raw stackdump below, in case it gives hints.
