    Absolutely agreed. And with Rajesh's code it should be possible
    to get object-based rmap right, not vulnerable to the scalability
    issues demonstrated by Ingo's test programs.

    Whether we go with mm-based or vma-based, I don't particularly
    care either. As long as the code is nice...
