As described in the Memory talk, page aliasing and COW work straightforwardly, although with one catch on the Mill: an unwritten COW page will have only one copy in memory because the physical address is aliased, but any lines in cache will be duplicated because the virtual addresses differ even though the data will be the same 🙁
