I think you could make the new syscall a lot more comprehensible bg
restricting it to just MAP_ANONYMOUS, by making it unmap the source,
or possibly both. If the new syscall unmaps the source (in order so
that the source is gone before the newly mapped pages become
accessible), then you avoid issues in which you need to define
sensible semantics for what happens if both copies are accessed
