Nah, I'm just trying to get an idea of the slowdown it would cause. I'm
thinking these pages are, as you call them "special" so they should not
be a huge chunk of all the system's pages, even if it is a machine with
a lot of memory so I guess it ain't that bad. We should keep an eye on
it though... :-)
