Apologies for delay, fell through the cracks.

Suggested rewording:

Currently, user mem maps will check if the newly mapped area is adjacent 
to any existing mapping, but will not check if the mapping is identical 
because it assumes that the API will never get called with the same 
mapping twice. This will result in duplicate entries in the user mem 
maps list.

Fix it by also checking for duplicate mappings, and skipping them if 
they are found.
