If we get to this stage then haven't we either already sent something
over the wire for this page or marked it as dirty when we tried and
failed to send it?

In the former case we don't care that the page is now broken on the
source since the target has got a good pre-breakage copy.

In the latter case could we not set a flag at the same time as we mark
the page dirty which means "go round at least one more time"?
