Subject: [RFC v4 0/3] Add support for eXclusive Page Frame Ownership

Hi all,

I have talked with Juerg about picking up the torch for XPFO [1], and have been
playing around with the set for a bit. I've fixed one memory corruption issue
since v3, and also tried and failed at integrating hugepages support. The code
in patch 3 seems to split up the page and apply the right protections, but
somehow the lkdtm test read succeeds and no fault is generated, and I don't
understand why.

Thoughts welcome,

Tycho
