Sorry, I've been waiting to have something positive to suggest,
but today still busy with my own issues (handling OOM in KSM).

I do dislike that additional argument to vm_normal_page, and
feel that's a problem to be solved in follow_page, rather
than spread to every other vm_normal_page user.

Does follow_page even need to be using vm_normal_page?
Hmm, VM_MIXEDMAP, __get_user_pages doesn't exclude that.

I also feel a strong (but not yet fulfilled) urge to check
all the use_zero_page ignore_zero stuff: which is far from
self-evident.
