Because of the issues related to fracturing large pages, you might have
had to go this route eventually anyway. Changing the kernel linear map
isn't nice.

FWIW, you could test this scheme by just converting all the users to
vmalloc() and seeing what breaks. They'd all end up rounding up all
their allocations to PAGE_SIZE, but that'd be fine for testing.

Could you point out 5 or 10 places in the kernel that you want to convert?
