POSIX says that mmap length doesn't need to be page-aligned. addr and off may have page alignment requirements, but length must be handled automatically. getpagesize is deprecated too.

Can you explain how this bug affects Tor?

removes cruft, very slightly increases performance.

As far as I can tell this looks good. Even the man pages mentions that getpagesize() is deprecated and sysconf(_SC_PAGESIZE) should be used instead.

The interesting part from POSIX:

The off argument is constrained to be aligned and sized according to the value 
returned by sysconf() when passed _SC_PAGESIZE or _SC_PAGE_SIZE. When MAP_FIXED
is specified, the argument addr must also meet these constraints. The
implementation performs mapping operations over whole pages. Thus, while the
argument len need not meet a size or alignment constraint, the implementation
will include, in any mapping operation, any partial page specified by the range
[pa, pa + len).

okay; merging this to master. I wonder if any of the mingw workarounds are still needed, but I guess we'll find out soon :)
