There is the "incoming" variable in vl.c (currently not a global), but I
suspect Peter's patch could have also broken loadvm.  It could quickly
become a rat hole.

The only bug we have is not a performance bug related to compression;
it's that writing zero pages breaks overcommit.  Let's fix that, and
only that.
