I'm talking about long-term goals here. Either of these two routes
would require whole new kernel interfaces to work effectively. Without
those new kernel interfaces our current approach is possibly the best
we can get.

I think the way to use mmap would be to mmap very large chunks,
possibly whole tables. We would need some way to control page flushes
that doesn't involve splitting mappings and can be efficiently
controlled without having the kernel storing arbitrarily large tags on
page tables or searching through all the page tables to mark pages
