This is an implementation detail that has gone unmentioned until now but
has impacted at least half a dozen locations in previous patches. Can
you rectify that, please?

What are "encrypt ion"s? :)

How expensive is this?

/* KeyId-0 pages were not used for MKTME and need no work */

... or something

Is page_keyid() optimized so that all this goes away automatically when
MKTME is compiled out or unsupported?
