Does this need to be a whole page? With 64kB pages, this is
potentially a lot of memory for something that will hardly ever be
used. The rest of the kernel limits this to 4kB, which seems more
reasonable. There is no guard page anyway, so PAGE_SIZE doesn't
provide any extra protection.

Thanks,

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
