    Ouch, that's an awful lot of open-coded incs and decs. Isn't there some
    more centralised place we can do this?

    What locking protects vma.nphys (can we call this nr_present or something?)

    Will this patch do the right thing with weird vmas such as the gate vma and
    mmaps of device memory, etc?
