NO I AM NOT!

Dammit, this feature is f*cking brain-damaged.

My complaint has been (and continues to be):

- either it is 100% the same as PROTNONE, in which case thjat
_PAGE_NUMA bit had better go away, and you just use the protnone
helpers!

- if it's not the same as PROTNONE, then it damn well needs a different bit.

You can't have it both ways. You guys tried. The Xen case shows that
trying to distinguish the two DOES NOT WORK. But even apart from the
Xen case, it was just a confusing hell.

Like Yoda said: "Either they are the same or they are not. There is no 'try'".

So pick one solution. Don't try to pick the mixed-up half-way case
that is a disaster and makes no sense.
