Ohh, right, I completely forgot about that, but that actually does
happen. We had trouble with AMD doing just that only about a year ago or
so IIRC.

CPUs are completely free to speculatively load TLB entries for pages
they never actually end up touching (typically prefetcher based), as
long as there's valid page-tables for them at the time.

So yes, you're right.
