     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 (Vir‐
     tual 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 statis‐
     tics (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 struc‐
     ture having the name pm_stats, and it must be updated by the implementa‐
     tion after each relevant pmap operation.
