        Patch below is needed to make my system work stable in PAE mode.
        Havn't seen problems without PAE, not sure whenever thats just
        pure luck or whenever there is a bug in my PAE xenlinux kernel.
        To me it looks like a generic bug though.
        I've actually trapped into problems with unpin only:  A process
        exits, somewhere in exit_mm() the page tables are unpinned,
        shortly thereafter the mappings are cleared.  While doing so the
        kernel oopses in zap_pte_range(), on page table write access.
        Probably due to some stale tlb entry where the page is still
        tagged read-only.
