Attached.  I took the opportunity to tidy up a bit and move more shared
code out of the write/cmpxchg/cmpxchg8b callbacks into helpers.  This is
smoke-tested but I don't have a test case for your virus-scanner's
behaviour.  Can you check that (a) it seems sane for what you want, and
(b) it actually does something useful?
