I still don't find any explanation for that behaviour, only trivially
testing with and without mlockall() in a bare main routine though.
In relation to this, I've rolled out 1.7-02/x86, so that we could close
the last pending issue(s) holding v2.3.1 wrt the interrupt pipeline
support. Specifically, the -nocow related changes have been amended, and
we are now back to the implementation that prevailed in the 1.6 series
wrt vmalloc and ioremap memory, while still retaining the ability to
break COW eagerly for the RT threads.
Feedback welcome on this.
