This is a feature. Exposing a file through RDMA, using ODP, can be done exactly like this. Given that the application explicitly requested this behavior, I don't see why it is a problem. Actually, some of our tests use such flows. The mmu notifiers mechanism allow us to do this safely. When the page is written back to disk, it is removed from the ODP mapping. When it is accessed by the HCA, it is brought back to RAM. Thanks, --Shachar
