I feel a bit clueless about buffer protocol. Current implemntation in 
pypy is purely app-level, which means it's slow, but more importantly, 
one cannot get raw, C-level address of it. I've tried approaching the 
problem, but it seems that there are several serious issues.

* what's the future of buffer protocol?
* do people use that? ctypes tests are relying on it. anybody knows 
ctypes module implementation that relies on it?
* testing suite sucks. we've got two tests, cpython is not any better in 
this regard.

where to proceed?
