D.M.Pick> FreeBSD has the identical text in the mlock(3) man page.
i knew there was a reason i still run freebsd on some machines ;-)
so, perhaps netbsd also has the support too. any netbsd users out
aside: not having looked into it and being completely ignorant about
the details this may be way off, but i have to wonder whether this
might be a case of unnecessary compliance w/ posix on linux's part.
but who am i to say this if there is another approach that will work
just as well ;-)
i suppose wondering about capabilities in openbsd|freebsd|netbsd is
likely to get me into trouble too...
