Currently, ld.elf_so doesn't honor the alignment specified in a
ELF file's psections. This is due to the lack of ability to request
an aligned block of addresses from mmap(2). I propose we add a
MAP_ALIGNED flag which would mean that the addr argument to mmap(2)
would be the required alignment of the block. Supplying both
MAP_ALIGNED|MAP_FIXED would cause an error EINVAL to be returned.
Any thought on this proposal?
