Have you tried mmap'ing the file again at the same address, but with a
larger length ?

As I see it, the only advantage of using mmap instead of read/write interface
is to avoid the extra system calls. However, by calling mremap or mmap
repeatedly, you're losing that advantage. I think you're better off by
extending your map in larger chunks, reducing the number of mmap/mremap 
calls. If you have a big enough address space, just use a large mmap region
to begin with.
