Right. If that's the only case where this happens, I'm not too bothered.
What I want to make sure is that the normal table->block upgrade path
(which goes via a MMU notifier that unmaps the table) stays relatively
quick and doesn't suffer from the above.

It looks like Yanan still has some concerns though, and I'd like to
understand what they are.

Thanks,
