Thanks for good explanation! I'm totally new to pmap and I guess I'm just
starting to be confused ;). Anyway I splitted atari/atari/pmap.c to two files:
atari/atari/pmap.c and atari/atari/pmap_bootstrap.c. I think it's better that
way and it's easier to test m68k and Atari specific pmap's.

Here's link to new patch (includes also atari/include/vmparam.h, /atar/conf/
files.conf and atari/atari/pmap_bootstrap.c):

I tried kernel with m68k/m68k/pmap_motorola.c and it failed with 030 as well.
Kernel prints following error:
panic: pool_put: buf8k: page header missing.

Maybe this is indicator that there's something wrong with 8KB page systems ?
