   Has anybody ever looked into implementing that?  What architectures
   besides MIPS could take advantage of such a feature?

We already use it on Sparc64 for mmap()'ing the frame buffers, we
could easily extend it to work for mmap()'s of real memory.  Check out
arch/sparc64/mm/generic.c in the vger CVS tree for details.
