In a multikernel setup, each kernel manages its own memory allocation, as the main memory
is distributed among all valid kernels. Hence, the described scenario does not apply.

In a multikernel, how would retyping work? Obviously, the kernel cannot
allow untyped X to be used for page tables if user code on another core
might still have write access to it. Would retyping involve some sort of
Obviously, the clustered multikernel avoids this, but making applications
(as opposed to low-level libraries and services) work around kernel
limitations seems rather unappealing.
