    Lets try a slightly modified patch... this one only generates warnings
    if the page is on a paging queue.

    There is clearly a race happening somewhere, and I think the solution
    is to remove the page from the paging queues (since we are trying to
    destroy it anyhow), but I'd like to accumulate a bit more evidence.
