You're not alone.  I know other programmer(s) who were suffered
from '2 sequential byte r/w instead of one single half-word r/w' hassle to build
conventional mmaped I/O userland applications.   The point is there are number
of gcc toolchains on this planet and none of them idential each other.  So,
beware and make sure to have correct command line options to use.
