    Well that's fairly straightforward, thanks. Butt-ugly though ;)

    Don't bother doing teardown yet. I have patches which batch
    all the zap_page_range activity into 16-page chunks, so we
    eventually end up in a single function with 16 virtually-contiguous
    pages to release. Adding the batched locking to that will
    be simple.

    Sigh. I have a test which sends the 2.5.30 VM into a five-minute
    coma and which immediately panics latest -ac with pte_chain oom.
    Remind me again why all this is worth it?

    I'll port your stuff to 2.5 over the weekend, let you know...
