The immediate fix is disabling Gigacage by setting GIGACAGE_ENABLED 0 in bmalloc/Gigacage.h.
This keeps bmalloc, but disables Gigacage.

My guess is that Linux fails to mmap regions and returns MAP_FAILED if the size is very large.
But I'm not sure right now since it is working on my environment...
Anyway, @mcatanzaro, do you know the way to allocate virtual memory region which does not have actual backing pages?
