I don't know if this is related at all, but on BSD/OS, we've had some systems
which need more kernel memory.  With the old crufty VM stuff, this is
"options KMEMSIZE", I don't know how to do a corresponding tweak with UVM.

There's a known potential deadlock where space would need to be allocated to
begin doing writes, but there's no space available.
