    Check also vm_area_struct - that's what memory contexts consist of
    (user memory consists of objects that correspond to areas; pagein,
    pageout, etc. are methods of these objects; mmap() and friends
    create/manipulate/destroy them). File mappings (both shared and
    private) are derived classes, ditto for attached shm segment, etc.
