Given how the buffers in question can be on the orders of tens of MB (and
I don't think they will ever be less than 1MB), would we be able to get
the desired effect by unmapping and then remapping on a 1MB granularity
(ie, L1 sections)? It seems to me like this should be sufficient, and
would not require using L2 mappings. Thoughts?
