If we meet opened but unlinked file we handle this by either carrying the file
with us, or by creating a hard-link when possible. Anyway, this is not a problem,
we can handle this.

As far as unmapped .text section is concerned. It also doesn't matter much. I we
agree on API that doesn't flush old mappings (I really hope we do), we will be
able to remap them as needed.
