Ok, after further reading I think with MAP_FIXED one has to „generate“ SHM
segment addresses hisself. So 0x8000000000000000UL would just be one possible
location for a hugepage.
Since this feature is not used in PG for now, the code should work. Could
someone with access to a ia64 architecture verify it?
