PMAP_ZERO(9) BSD Kernel Developer's Manual PMAP_ZERO(9)NAME
pmap_zero_page, pmap_zero_area, pmap_zero_idle — zero-fill a page using
pmap_zero_page_area(vm_page_t m, int off, int size);
The pmap_zero_page() function zero-fills an entire page using machine-
dependent optimizations. The pmap_zero_page_area() function is used to
zero-fill an area of a page. The range specified must not cross a page
boundary; it must be contained entirely within a single page.
The pmap_zero_page_idle() interface is used by the vm_pagezero process.
The system-wide Giant lock should not be required to be held in order to
call this interface.
This function is required to be implemented for each architecture sup‐
ported by FreeBSD.
