Yeah, so, what I'm trying to say is that that might be the source of the
problem. Is the current page ownership attribution correct given that the fd
for whatever reason is determining the pinning ownership or should the page
ownership be attributed the same way too? If they indeed need to differ,
that probably would need pretty strong justifications.

Thanks.
