I'm more concerned with future regression caused by changes to the
generic x86 code to (for example) install a different early page fault

Can we fix this specific issue in the way I suggested (avoiding the
unnecessary m2p lookup entirely) and then discuss the merits of the page
fault handler approach as a separate topic?
