I noticed when running libefence on a heavy small object mallocer, increasing
slowdown for each mmap. libefence maps pages like so:


for each malloc, inorder to catch off region reads and writes. If whatever pmap/uvm
mechanism being applied only has linear page indexing, this would account for
the observed behavior. Is this the case?
