Can you please move those into the respective pageattr.cs without ifdefs?
Also the va < MODULES_VADDR test seems overly magic; while it may work right now
it seems fragile. It would be better to test the exact ranges in the respective

Unrelated change? Why? Should probably be separate patch.

While ok too it should be also separate please.
