Nothing's set in stone, but having the implementation-specific code
constrain the page-table format (especially wrt quirks) sounds reasonable to
me. I'm currently waiting for Krishna to respin the nvidia changes [1] on
top of this so that we can see how well the abstractions are holding up.

I certainly won't merge the stuff until we have a user.
