    Yeah I guess I should really do that, and you're right it would
    work nicely for this.

    Actually I have some code but it is not quite as nice as I'd like.
    The problem is that we have the generic file fault handler, but not
    a generic page mkwrite handler. So we still need some kind of
    page_mkwrite aop which the file fault handler can then call if it
    exists. It isn't a big problem AFAIKS, but just a bit irritating.
