    This is not "corruption", nor is it a "regression"; that element was
    intentionally removed from struct uvmexp.
    It appears that uvm(9) was not updated to reflect this.
    It also appears that this bubblemon-dockapp is broken; it should be
    using struct uvmexp_sysctl and the VM_UVMEXP2 sysctl to get it, rather
    than struct uvmexp and VM_UVMEXP.
 if VM_UVMEXP is returning different info then someone has broken it.
