So I'm not convinced it is. The mprotect() hack isn't portable as we've
established and on x86 where it does work, it doesn't (much) perturb
tasks not related to our process because we keep a tight mm_cpumask().

And if there are other (unpriv.) means of spraying IPIs around, we
should most certainly look at fixing those, not just shrug and make
matters worse.
