It's kinda weird that these scores are so close -- I guess its just
coincidence that we must be getting something like an average of 10-20
pte's updated per pagetable page and the cost of doing multiple emulates
perfectly balances the cost of unhooking/rehooking.
Ian, I'll try a small program which dirties a large chunk of memory. I'll also try the trace tool and see what we get.
