The first address 0xb6000000 is a physical memory 32-bit address that
we are trying to map under n32 or o32 and it is valid.
         mmh = open("/dev/mem", O_RDWR | O_SYNC);
         if (mmh < 0) {
         mmptr = (unsigned short *)mmap((void *)0, 0x1000,
                             PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED,
                             mmh, 0xb6000000);

and the second one 0xffffffffb6000000 address is that old_mmap have
got on the kernel side when we do mmap under those abis,  calling
do_mmap2 after that with 0xffffffffb6000000 last parameter. This
example above works correctly only under n64 abi.

thanks, Dinar.
