well, for the codasrv process, it looks like 0x20000000-0x27100000 is taken

(for my Data size of 130M) and then a whole bunch of other stuff starts in
0x2aabxxxx range, so it would look as though that's where the overlap is

Does this mean I have to pick a custom range for my RVM Data mapping, and
if so, how should I go about this?  The same way that was mentioned
a week or so ago when discussing setting up RVM for a 42 Gig server,
with a start address of 0x41000000 (checking, of course that this is free
by checking  /proc/{pid}/maps)?
