18  * Relative pointers are intended to be used when storing an address that may
19  * be relative either to the base of the process's address space or some
20  * dynamic shared memory segment mapped therein.
21  *
22  * The idea here is that you declare a relative pointer as relptr(type)
23  * and then use relptr_access to dereference it and relptr_store to change
24  * it. The use of a union here is a hack, because what's stored in the
25  * relptr is always a Size, never an actual pointer. But including a pointer
26  * in the union allows us to use stupid macro tricks to provide some measure
27  * of type-safety.
