I suspect you'll run out of address space long before you reach
SIZE_T_MAX, since SIZE_T_MAX is equal to the size of the address space
minus one on all relevant platforms.

I don't quite understand this code, BTW - it discards the return value
from mmap(), and it does not attempt to map chunks contiguously.  I
assume this is because it is unfinished?
