Right, if there are no objections, I'll just submit a small patch (in a
few minutes) that moves MEM_ACCESS_EMULATE and
MEM_ACCESS_EMULATE_NOWRITE up near the VM_EVENT_FLAG_ constants, and

It seems like this would be a pretty straightforward change, so I assume
it's likely to go in fast.


Sounds good. Probably it shouldn't take long to land that small fix in staging. But we will have conflicts as my patches introduce new VM_EVENT_FLAGs too so depending on the order of things, it's a PITA ;)
