I've attached a patch that takes a different approach. I still need to
test it more extensively, but is this patch acceptable in principle?

It adds an mmap symbol to the loader thereby overriding the libc symbol.
This captures all calls to libc mmap and allows modifying the address
argument if needed. It doesn't capture cases that call the kernel
syscall directly, so shared libraries for instance are all still loaded
in the narrow address space close to the 2GiB boundary. This patch also
increases that space to 48MiB. It might work, but needs more testing.
