Right. We should simply need to enable the shadow memory in V2.
ADLO can take it from there. We can reexamine if we ever find
memory that has a problem being read-write.
It is weird that ADLO loads in one place and runs in another but
that is largely a non-issue. We need the a loader that runs
in protected mode. So whatever I was thinking with ELF tricks
is something we can ignore.
