But you do cast your mapped address to a function pointer. Does that
do the right thing for architectures with fat function pointers?
You also don't seem to mention instruction/data-cache issues. I don't
remember if mprotecting something +x makes any guarantees about caches
(cf. arm_sync_icache(2) for example).

You can always parse ELF yourself (unfortunately libelf is still not
imported, it seems).
