I have a problem in COMPAT_IRIX with library loading: one of the
libaries has a load address in the ELF headers that would cause the
library to be laoded in a range of addresse where another library is
already loaded.

I use the vmcmd stuff used in sys/kern/exec_subr.c. The question is: is
it possible to tell this subsystem to load an ELF section at any free
address instead of failing with ENOMEM, when the requested address is
already used? (This is what IRIX does for this library)
