...ok, It was not a good idea to remove #ifdef _KERNEL in vmparam.h.
We'd better to keep VM_NFREELIST behind _KERNEL curtain.
pmap(1) doesn't really require VM_NFREELIST or struct uvm. It just
uses things from <uvm/uvm_object.h> and <uvm/uvm_device.h>, and some
constants defined in <uvm/uvm.h>. How about a patch to <uvm/uvm.h>
