Sorry, I'm talking rubbish here. As you say, the relevant code is actually
in the foreign mapping paths (e.g., in arch/x86/mm.c). Those paths do a
get_page() on the foreign page. This stops it being removed from the domU
page list. A non-empty page list holds a reference on the domU. So the domU
will not die until that foreign mapping is destroyed.
