BTW. this is known to be broken with x86 1GB pages and direct-IO, due
to interaction between huge pages patchset and lockless get_user_pages.

My fault. I was away from the screen over the long weekend here, and
didn't give Andrew the heads-up in time.

This isn't going to be a problem unless you explicitly enable GB pages
and run direct IO (or splice) into or out of them. I can give a fixup
patch to anyone interested in doing so.
