    When I did this a couple of weeks back it failed in
    mysterious ways and I ended up parking it. Failure
    symptoms included negative numbers being reported in
    /proc/meminfo for "Locked" and "Dirty".

    How well has this been tested? (If the answer
    is "not very" then please wait until I've tested
    it out...)
