Yep, that's the simple approach.  I dropped this suggestion from my
original reply since it requires addr to be on a 64k boundary.  
Unfortunately I have no idea if the chance to succeed might be better
or worse than using the more complex approach.

Either way, it's not us but gcc being on the wrong track.  If gcc relies
on getting the same address it should use MAP_FIXED at least on hosts
known to support MAP_FIXED correctly.
