This is not musl-specific; Linux always does that for 32-bit x86 binaries running on a 64-bit kernel. You can either run on a 32-bit kernel or set the ADDR_LIMIT_3GB personality() flag when running your program. Assuming part of the address space is not used is not a portable assumption to make, though. Rich
