Why bother to find a place to store the page in shared memory at all? If
we just want to read it, and it isn't already in shared memory, then why
not just ask the kernel for the specific byte we need? The byte we want to
read can't differ between shared memory and kernel, because it doesn't
exist in shared memory.
