I understood that the problems the NetBSD VM system has when it
runs out of VM would not occur on a system that preallocated swap.
(Not that the problem are inherent in a system that does not
preallocate swap, just present in the NetBSD implementation)
Apologies if I'm playing with crossed wires on this one :)
