AFAIK kernel mutexes aren't paged out nor is the kernel map.

The 68851 is mostly a superset of the 68030MMU. If the page tables
only use 68030 features then it should work the same.

The only gotcha would be the smaller 68030 ATC (22 vs 64 entries).
If we forgot to flush the ATC correctly this might have an effect.
