Nick is talking about changing the kenrel so that it "refcounts pagetable
pages". I'm not sure why.

I assume that this means that each pte page's refcount will be incremented
by one for each instantiated pte. If so, then /proc/pid/smaps can become a
lot more efficient. Just add up the page refcounts on all the pte pages -
no need to walk the ptes themselves.

Maybe?
