Thanks - I had hoped we would have reported testing results earlier, but
this unfortunately is going pretty slowly.

One thing though - shouldn't further walking be suppressed if at a
given level any violation is detected (i.e. if rc became non-zero)? For
sure the hardware aborts a walk at least if reserved bits are found
set, and I'd suspect it also doesn't bother continuing the walk if access
rights don't permit the result to be used.
