Hi folks...

I've just committed my code that adds support for mmap'ing disk block
devices to both Mach VM and UVM.  I'll probably add support for mmap'ing
disk character devices shortly.

This has worked fine in my tests, but if any of you have real applications
that use it, please report your successes or failures.

Have fun!
