In the hope that this report is useful to you, I compiled your program
readmem.c on my Alpha Personal WorkStation 433, and ran it as root.
No problems or crashes. It ended with:
read #1024 of 16384 bytes
done with read of /dev/mem (returned 1).
So, I guess this machine is lucky :-)
For completeness' sake:
Alpha PWS 433
576 MB memory + 2 MB L3-cache
Voodoo3 3000 PCI, Symbios Logic 53c875, SB Live
running Debian Sid (unstable).
