From: Noam Camus <noamc@ezchip.com>

Today bss/heap is placed above last loaded sections.
However if STACK_TOP is not equal to TASK_SIZE we wish to ignore
such sections mapped to this gap between STACK_TOP and TASK_SIZE.
set_brk will never work for such case.

So at the moment this addition is just a sanity check.

An alternative (more complex):
Linux would make use of LMA field in ELF, then we can set VMA below
STACK_TOP and set LMA to be between STACK_TOP and TASK_SIZE to match
such special memory mapping.
