Can you tell us more about this whole thing? What's the rough difference
to our current scheme, does one use it in kernel config files, ... ?
the code commit log had more info:
add new version of non contiguous memory code, written by chuck cranor,
called "MACHINE_NEW_NONCONGIG". this is required for UVM, the new VM
system (also written by chuck) that is coming soon. adds new functions:
vm_page_physload() -- tell the VM system about an area of memory.
vm_physseg_find() -- returns index in vm_physmem array that this
address is in.
and several new versions of old functions/macros defined in vm_page.h.
in general, a user will not need to worry about this. when ready, a
port master will switch their port to use this by default. when all
ports are converted, the old code (contig, and old non-contig cases)
will be removed.
