BTW, OpenBSD/hp300 (looks more active than us) has dropped
support for those machines, IIRC.  If these machines could
be a showstopper on future pmap enhancements,
we should consider to follow them ;-)

On the other hand, sun3 (68020 + Sun MMU?) and sun3x (68030 builtin,
but three level lookups that PROM uses) have their own pmap
and also use 4K page.
