    I think this approach would create new failure cases that don't exist
    now. Whether that's acceptable or not is another issue.

    The forced page table move, and TLB+cache flush that goes along with
    that, for every single compat task we get now on the other hand is not
    acceptable :-)

    I also think this page table move overhead is worse than the
    non-swapability added by Al's approach.
