Subject and patch disagree on the new structure name. :)

Could you draw a nice diagram demonstrating the new design? It is not 
straightforward to derive it from the patch series.

Emphasis on relationships between engines, requests and request_active etc.

Also I notice even though you later add vma->last_read, I don't see that 
obj->last_read is never removed.
