For some random backup info:

  madvise() exists on a 2.2-STABLE machine I have, and per the
  manpage: HISTORY

     The madvise() function first appeared in 4.4BSD.

So I expect you'll find it or something like it on most platforms...

Oh, and Hi everybody, from another representative of the group that
