Ah, OK.

It's OK, if there's the requirement to allocate the whole page for
shmem pagerefs array. If not, the proposed approach means that you'll
waste the whole page to store shared memory descriptors, even if
shared memory is as small as one page, and so a single u64 is needed
to describe it. I think it makes sense for compile-time declared
shmems.
