Do we need the bitmap? I expect we can just string all these pages
onto a local list via page.lru. Would need to check that - the
pageframe fields are quite overloaded.

It'd be nice if this head-spinning arithmetic were spelled out in a
comment somewhere. There are rather a lot of magic-number heuristics
in here.

All looks pretty sane to me.
