The https method for SVN works for me, thanks for providing that

Now using munmap followed by a new call to mmap

This has a few consequences:

- The effects of any previous madvise calls will be lost, it should only
be an issue for rrd_create though as nothing else should append the rrd

- Any pointers made from rrd_file_t.file_start will become invalid - I
couldn't find any other code using this pointer, however, I will submit
another patch later that buries the pointer and file descriptor so that
it is less likely that someone uses them outside rrd_open.c
