Okay, I get you. But what should happen if someone *is* mapping the buffers
when lttctl-xen -r is invoked? Is that an error condition, or is the
implementation supposed to reap the buffers 'as soon as possible' (i.e.,
when the last mapping goes away)?

Actually I think we can support either way, although the former will work
right now and the latter will need a bit of extra support added into Xen.
