Try this:

A checkpoint should be extremely similar to a corefile, with additional
information about open files, etc. So if you make the process dump core via
the usual mechanism, you aren't going to have a problem with page requests.
And you can avoid most of the architecture-specific hacks that are all over
Epckpt.
