Early on in the ARM effort I sent a patch to disable it and was shot

In theory it might work. In practice I expect it will not and some
function it uses will return ENOSYS (steal_page springs to mind) so it
won't actually work.

I wasn't aware of that limitation. In that case it is very unlikely to

I haven't done the 1-1 stuff for 64-bit ARM yet -- obviously when I do
tmem might at least become plausible there.
