I'm not sure how to feel about this. It's a bit fragile versus somebody adding
new page flags. I don't know whether it's needed or whether you can just
copy page->flags directly because you're holding PageLock.

I have a suspicion you'd be better off allocating a temporary page and
using copy_page(). Some architectures have put a lot of effort into
making copy_page() run faster.

This needs to be converted to the XArray. radix_tree_lookup_slot() is
going away soon. You probably need:

XA_STATE(to_xas, &to_mapping->i_pages, page_index(to_page));

This is a lot of code and I'm still trying to get my head aroud it all.
Thanks for putting in this work; it's good to see this approach being
explored.
