Another idea that I haven't really thought through so it might turned
out to be completely bogus but let's try anyway. Your "report everything"
just made me look and realize that free_pages_prepare already performs
stuff that actually does something similar yet unrelated.

We do report to special page poisoning, zeroying or
CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC to unmap the address from the kernel address
space. This sounds like something fitting your model no?
