Sorry for being so late, but I don't think it's a defect (and it's a
showstopper because no other has reclaimed such functionality).
MAP_FIXED is dangerous and isn't portable so if the desired address is
already mapped the mapping should fail. If you want to use unix behavior
you can always use munmap to unmap the desired address range and try
that address.
