    A normal write is a VFS write() call, I assume. While they're going
    through the page cache, the pages are dirty, right? Is it possible that
    FUSE needs more real memory after dirtying those pages in order to finish
    cleaning them?

    What about the 3rd case: private writable mapping? How does that work?
