Eh, what?  

Don't we want to avoid MMAP on a temporary file?  This seems contrary
to how I understand things.  Now, we have to have enough disk space
to back the shared memory.  Ack.

The ordering was as I intended and is similar to the ordering in MM.
MAP_ANON should be our preference on Linux.  There are some reports
that older versions of Linux don't support MAP_ANON properly.  But,
I haven't run across that yet.  --  justin
