I may have used the wrong word.  mmap() must align, but that's no
reason (size_t)pointer has to look sane.  If it wants, the machine
can still have PDP-endian descending address representation with
a checkbit as every 4th bit, while running in a mode with big-
endian integers, all of which shows up in (size_t)pointer.
Anyway, the branch now tries to test for sane-looking addresses.
