I will request the server folks go and test this. You'll probably
remember a couple of parts we've seen where aggressive walker caches
ended up (correctly) seeing stale page table entries and we had all
manner of horrifically hard to debug problems. We have some fairly nice
reproducers that were able to find this last time that we can test.
