So the problem is that the syncer will unconditionally call putpages
e.g. on umount. It might need a two stage approach for dealing with
dirty mmapped pages to implement properly, but for the use cases of
read-only tmpfs I have (and likely others), it doesn't really matter.
E.g. if you want to build multiple build chroots without paying for the
extreme locking penalty of nullfs.
