OK, so I went rummaging in the autoconf stuff packaged with ffcall and
pieced together the little mmap() test program it runs immediately after
checking the declaration. This program instantly crashes a 380 running
1.4V. Thanks for the clue Michael.
Looking at what this test does, I suspect it is tripping over the
known 68040 limitations of the hp300 pmap. It doesn't map very much
memory but it maps chunks scattered across the address space in a way
that chews up a bunch of level 2 descriptor pages. I'll submit a PR
with this info. I'm also going to see if I can figure out how it might
be fixed but I don't know how far I'll get.
