     pmap - machine-dependent portion of virtual memory subsystem

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/pmap.h>

     The pmap module is the machine-dependent portion of the FreeBSD VM
     (Virtual Memory) sub-system.  Each function documented herein must have
     its own architecture-dependent implementation.

     The pmap module is responsible for managing hardware-dependent objects
     such as page tables, address maps, TLBs, etc.

     Machine-dependent code must provide the header file <machine/pmap.h>.
     This file contains the definition of the pmap structure:

           struct pmap {
                   /* Contents defined by pmap implementation. */
           typedef struct pmap *pmap_t;

     This header file may also define other data structures used by the pmap

     The header file <vm/pmap.h> defines a structure for tracking pmap
     statistics (see below).  This structure is defined as:

           struct pmap_statistics {
                   long        resident_count; /* number of mapped pages */
                   long        wired_count;    /* number of wired pages */

     The implementation's struct pmap must contain an instance of this
     structure having the name pm_stats, and it must be updated by the
     implementation after each relevant pmap operation.
