Right, I forgot about that and thanks for the heads up, Ian.

Actually, IINM, non-escaping Go objects are already possibly allocated and
thus also moved within Go stacks. So my claim about being safe with Go
pointers living in mmap'ed memory under certain conditions would have to be
tightened even more - no pointers into Go stack. But there's, in the first
approximation, no way how to know if a Go object is heap or stack
allocated, so the outcome actually is - it's generally not safe to have
_any_ Go pointers outside Go managed memory.

Sorry for the noise.
