While trying do build and install clisp (/usr/pkgsrc/lang/clisp), my HP
9000/433t panicked with the message:

This was just after the build job had printed out the configure message:
"checking for working mmap".  I retrieved the test in question and cleaned
it up:
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>

int main ()
        int flags = MAP_ANON | MAP_PRIVATE;
        int fd = -1;
#define my_shift 24
#define my_low   1
#define my_high  64
#define my_size  8192
        long i;
        for (i=my_low; i<=my_high; i++) {
                caddr_t addr = (caddr_t)(i << my_shift);
                long size = ((i+1)/2)*my_size;
                if (mmap(addr,size,PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE,flags|MAP_FIXED,fd,0) == MAP_FAILED)

Note that the above program will crash my hp433t even when run as a
non-root user.  The crashes are repeatable.
