The above is mistaken -- there's no way to disable the mmap() segment in
9.3, other than recompiling with EXEC_BACKEND which is probably
undesirable for other reasons.

I don't think I had ever heard of that recipe to use huge pages in
previous versions; since the win is probably significant in some
systems, we could have made this configurable.
