If it's the fault I already reported quite some time ago: someone in his
unbelievable wisdom decided to make something a default that he/she obviously
didn't even bother to test. Check out ite_rh.c, there are sections
ifdef'd out with something like RETINA_SPEED_HACK or so. The code which
gets executed if this define is *not* defined (thus, the default!) causes
these vm_faults. Define this symbol -> no more vm_faults. I was slightly
pissed when I found out about this...
