This memory is freed after loading is complete. I was wrong in that it's "just address space rather than memory allocation". We have to zeroize the hash table, so it's memory (unless we were to explicitly use mmap, or used an implementation of calloc that uses mmap internally for sizes like this and skips zeroization then).
