this makes openbsd very broken and insecure. keeping fd open after
mmap is a very bad practice from a security standpoint. i don't think
we should include ugly hacks like this to support a broken os...
aren't there other ways of making it work anyway? if nothing else,
make a module like dhahelper/svgalib_helper for openbsd...
