/* This subsystem will trap SIGBUS on specific memory regions. The
 * regions will be remapped to anonymous memory (i.e. writable NUL
 * bytes) on SIGBUS, so that execution of the main program can
 * continue though with memory having changed beneath its hands. With
 * pa_memtrap_is_good() it is possible to query if a memory region is
 * still 'good' i.e. no SIGBUS has happened yet for it.
 *
 * Intended usage is to handle memory mapped in which is controlled by
 * other processes that might execute ftruncate() or when mapping inb
 * hardware resources that might get invalidated when unplugged. */
