Steps to reproduce:

On Solaris madvise is declared like:

int madvise(caddr_t addr, size_t len, int advice);

On Linux:

int madvise(void *addr, size_t length, int advice);

(first argument type: caddr_t vs void*)

Therefore we should use on Solaris posix_madvise which is:

int posix_madvise(void *addr, size_t len, int advice);

(and it internally calls madvise anyway)

This would be the same approach as it was used in different places (e.g. Bug 963983).
