	anon faults in kernel_map (eg. uvm_io) don't work because
	we can't allocate anons with kernel_map locked these days.
	code inspection.
	one of the followings?
	- allocate an anon before locking the map.
	- drop the lock and re-lock.
	- use a dedicated submap for uvm_io.
	- use a submap for anons.
