How is the page going to get modified again? A forked page isn't
mapped by a pte, so userspace can't modify it by mmap. The forked
page is not in the page cache, so usespace can't modify it by
posix file ops. So the writer would have to be in kernel. Tux3
knows what it is doing, so it won't modify the page. What kernel
code besides Tux3 will modify the page?
