The FTBFS can be worked around by skipping "make test" on s390. I'm
considering that.

You're right that the problem is not specific to s390 (it's just triggered a
lot earlier). I don't categorically know that bup itself (not just the tests)
gracefully handle failing mmaps.  Upstream report that i386 can get into
problems with large backups.  Whether that's RC is another question.

Upstream did map out a possible solution for gracefully handling failing
mmap within bup, but no code so far.

You are being unnecessarily antagonistic - please try to be constructive.
