Ah, that's cool, thanks for the tip how to do it.  I don't mind the delay in
page out performance right now.

I can try the default pager approach again later, but it's only a couple of
lines of code either way, and I have more pressing issues to solve.

Can you please verify with me that the following code matches what you
described here:

pager_write_page (struct user_pager_info *upi, vm_offset_t page,
                  vm_address_t buf)
  assert (upi->memobj_pages[page / vm_page_size] == (vm_address_t) NULL);
  upi->memobj_pages[page / vm_page_size] = buf;
  return 0;

/* Implement the pager_clear_user_data callback from the pager library. */
pager_clear_user_data (struct user_pager_info *upi)
  int idx;

  for (idx = 0; idx < upi->memobj_npages; idx++)
    if (upi->memobj_pages[idx])
      vm_deallocate (mach_task_self (), upi->memobj_pages[idx], vm_page_size);
  free (upi);
