It seems a bit weird to copy all of this. Is it trying to be faster or
something?

Couldn't it just check r->start in execmem_text/data_alloc() path and
switch to EXECMEM_DEFAULT if needed then? The execmem_range_is_data()
part that comes later could be added to the logic there too. So this
seems like unnecessary complexity to me or I don't see the reason.
