I hope you're not trying to understand the shadow pagetable code jsut
for fun!  What is it that you want to do with it?  I'm not going to try
to explain the entire pagefault path but if you're trying to add a
feature then maybe I can help you with it - and with sending your
changes upstream when they're done, of course!

I admit that the shadow code is often, let's say, opaque; but those
functions have block comments right above where they're declared.
