    SubjectRe: [RFC] invalidate_mmap_range() misses remap_file_pages()-affected targets

    Please don't. Remap_file_pages() not 100% working the way
    a normal mmap() works should be a case of "doctor, it hurts".

    Making the VM more complex just to support the (allegedly
    low overhead) hack of remap_file_pages() doesn't seem like
    a worthwhile tradeoff to me.

    In fact, I wouldn't mind if remap_file_pages() was simplified ;)
