malloc(3) can be controlled by MALLOC_OPTIONS to use mmap-based allocation as opposed to sbrk-based allocation. But allocations/deallocations with mmaps can eventually lead to non-continuously mmapped memory (having some non-mmapped gaps).

Are these gaps excluded from the process size or size is always linked to the current highest available address in memory space?
