    Yes, that sounds interesting and I will look at it as soon as I can.
    Though I suspect the I/O setup for page locking/unlocking/translation
    will be too slow if it has to be done for each read/write operation.

    My approach is for when you want to set these things up in advance, then
    use them repeatedly.
