I thought map->end should be the end of the range, not something after
the end, is that really the case?

I.e. the bug would be in that call to map__init, that should instead be:

	map__init(map, type, start, start + len - 1, pgoff, dso);

no? Isn't that clearer, i.e. to keep the semantics of 'end'?
