We are treating mshared region same as threads sharing address space. There is one PTE that is being used by all
processes and the VMA maintained in the separate mshare mm struct that also holds the shared PTE is the one that gets
added to rmap. This is a different model with mshare in that it adds an mm struct that is separate from the mm structs
of the processes that refer to the vma and pte in mshare mm struct. Do you see issues with rmap in this model?

Thanks,
Khalid
