Why?  Not only would this require a system trap, but there are many
trust issues which you would need to resolve.  Anyway, pager_memcpy
only uses memcpy (as opposed to the far more efficient vm_map) for
unaligned and non-full page reads and writes.

When issuing a receive ipc (or send and receive ipc), the client
provides a receive window.  The server returns an fpage which the
kernel installs into the receive window.
