I looked into this.  The issue here is the child process in the emacs shell
isn't paged aligned for staddr.  Adding a:

        staddr = (guint8*)((int)staddr & ~(mono_pagesize () - 1));

before setting tls->stack_ovf_guard_base fixes the problem.


  Is this the correct way to fix this (the mmap call in mono_valloc was failing
on the non-aligned address).  Also, the assert there looks dangerous.  If we're
on a machine without mmap mono_valloc falls thru to a malloc call, meaning the
pointers will never match.  Is it possible to have a machine without mmap and
with sigaltstack tho?
