for Linux. You're a smart guy and it's a shame to
see you waste your time reinventing the wheel.

Remember when I explained to you that this was exactly
what I wanted to do in the new VM, except that I didn't
see why we would want to restrict it to swap pages only?

If you have the time, please read the source of the new
VM code. It would be nice to have your input on it too.
