I see.

As Dave explains, gcore needs to inform users of the fact that some
part of memory is lost. However, it is cerntain that currnet
implementation displays ``page fault'' even for the pages that should
be displayed differently. I want to change the message for such pages
to proper one.

Also, to be honest, I didn't know PADDR_NOT_AVAILABLE. Looking at
source code, it appears to be used in Xen path. I have yet to know
whether or not to use the macro. I'll consider it more.

BTW, if you feel the page-fault message noisy, please use -v 0. Then,
gcore doesn't say almost anything.
