(not a big deal, but still raise this up)

It seems to me VFIO MMIO regions do not allow private maps, so even_cow==true
should be the same with even_cow==false. even_cow==true will just check the
page mapping for each pte even though they should just all match, imho, so
logically "false" should work the same and should be tiny-little faster.
