By the way, I think the definition of PMAP_MEM_CONTIG
(if present) should live in:  sys/arch/*/include/pmap.h
because it is the pmap module that determines whether
this definition should be present or not.  (It depends
on which interface the pmap module implements.) All the
VM code that presently cares about MACHINE_NONCONTIG
already includes machine/pmap.h (indirectly).
