Great work, Sang-yong!  Thanks for your investigating the
problem.  I could not find it by myself.  I'd like to know
whether people who met buffer corruption of buffindexed
run it on linux SMP or not.

} Therefore, the next step would be writing a test program which simulate

} I want to prove that MMAP misses writes if they run simulataneously
} on a SMP Linux.

Then, current MMAP_MISSES_WRITES verification in configure
is not enough for buffindexed.

} Katsuhiro, would you like to write a such test program so that I can run
} my Linux SMPs?  If all goes well, we may replace the test program in
} INN configure...

I wish I could, but I've been terribly busy in my office
work for these few months.  I hope someone will do instead.
Sang-yong, could you ...?
