Well... assuming that I'm the only one reporting this problem, I wonder
if the problem is related to the pvscsi stuff I've been testing. It's
likely that my drivers aren't releasing resources at shutdown in the
same way as the linux scsifront drivers (or at all...), so it could be
something that wouldn't otherwise show up.

Alternatively it could be a combination of the gplpv drivers and netback
or blkback. I'm pretty sure that I had the problem before I started
testing pvscsi...

The machine I am testing on will be busy for the rest of the night, but
tomorrow I'll do some testing and see what happens, unless you can
suggest a way I could discover what those pages belong to in the
