	mclpool assumes that there is always enough kva to allocate items
	up to hardlimit.
	after "kmapent" changes, it isn't likely true.
	one of the followings?

	1. make PR_LIMITFAIL fail on kva starvation as well.
	2. adjust the size of the submap, considering overhead of kmapent.
	3. revive kmem_map-backed mapent pool.
