Unfortunately, we met "no vspace available" during loading libmono.so,
when using default arch_get_unmapped_area_topdown method, tested on
Jelly Bean with 3.4 kernel.
While no problem using arch_get_unmapped_area in the patch, or just
revert this patch.
The result is some application can not run.

Just google, find same issue reported on Jelly Bean with 3.4 kernel.

Any suggestion?
