I'll take a look at these after I cut my next linux emulator patch.  Thanks
for the pointer.

These will probably be merged with the stackgap allocations because there
are still a ton of syscalls that I have to split to finish the emulator

I'm not even sure which project I'm working on anymore.  Am I removing
COMPAT_43 from the tree or removing stackgap allocations from the emulators?
Heh, I guess I'll have to do both.
