I still think you need a separate loading code for these, it makes no
sense to try to mmap sections that aren't page aligned. You should
either mmap the whole file at once if all the sections file offsets
are equal to their virtual address, or else read the sections in by
hand; and you shouldn't try to set memory protections on unaligned
sections, this cannot work.
