While working on a fix for pr/13998 I noticed that several (maybe many)
shared library pages seem to be permanently mapped into the kernel. This
is bad news on a VAC machine since such mappings tend to be always
writable, so we must leave all such mappings of that page uncached (all
user-space mappings are read-only).
Is this correct behaviour (that the kernel should keep a mapping of such
If not, any idea where they may be being entered?
