looks like i goofed up slightly. sys/vm/vm_pager.c should explicitly
include <machine/cpu.h>. (On the i386 it does, but only because other
headers include it.)
It's decidedly _NOT_ supposed to be an empty macro; take a look at the
source that uses it, and the reason (and the solution) will make sense.
