On big gotcha is the address-space for a process. You might have to move
the startaddress around to be able to fit a huge mmap. And you'll
probably need as much swap space as the size of the RVM data segment.

Another thing is to enable `mapprivate' in the server.conf file,
otherwise the startup time of the server will be far too long as it
would try to read everything from disk to vm which is then pushed out to
swap. On Linux, private mmap only works on files, so rvm-data has to be
a regular file and not a raw partition.
