If Anthony's happy, I'm happy with this approach.

The little-endian conversion of the balloon driver is a historical mistake
(no other driver does this). Let's not extend it to the stats.
Here you've done one and not the other, which is even worse. (Sparse would
have found this, I assume).

Is 32 bits sufficient? A big machine might get over 4bn faults, and certainly
4 TB of memory isn't that far away.
