This may sound crazy for desktop/server systems but for embedded devices
it might be very useful - in many embedded systems where the machine is
only doing a single thing anyway you might be willing to sacrifice the
protection for performance. It's not an easy trade off but it sometime
makes sense - many embedded systems don't even bother with memory
