I've started working on a port to NetBSD for the TS-7200 ARM board and
Cirrus Logic EP93XX processor.  I've noticed some of the evbarm boards
load the kernel text at 2Mbytes from the bottom of SDRAM.  It seems some
page tables and special stack areas are alloced from that 2Mbyte space
below the kernel but it seems that whats left of that memory is not put on
the UVM freelist.  Is the rest of this space intended to be for the kernel
stack to grow into or am I just missing something?
