Ok, this is now in my git tree with the changes I outlined in the other email.

.. but _my_ only testing was to just add a nasty hack that said that
all pages are pinned, and made fork() much slower, but hey, it at
least tests the preallocation paths etc. And I'm not seeing any
obvious failures due to taking that slow-path that is supposed to be a
special case.

Let's hope this closes the rdma issues.
