Did you see changes in free memory in top ? Linux/top may count differently
memory implicitly shared via fork() using copy on write method and memory
explicitly shared using mmap().

nginx calls GeoIP_open() in master process while (re)configuration, so
all workers get the same physical memory unless they will modify it.
I'm not sure, but I think that GeoIP does not modify the base after it
is loaded.

BTW when GeoIP_open() uses mmap(), it calls mmap() with MAP_PRIVATE flag,
which means that pages modified in a worker ceased to be shared between
workers, so basically there is no difference from malloc() method.
