It isn't. HP/UX brk seems to be equivalent to sys_brk(addr + PAGE_SIZE), i.e.
while Linux gets passed a pointer to the first byte after the end of the brk'd
segment, HP/UX brk gets passed a pointer to the first byte of the last page of
it. At least, this seemed to be the case for our first binaries.
