IIRC the kernel code and most (MM)IO space is BAT-mapped 1:1 on
machines that have BATs, otherwise we'd crash and burn when turning off
the MMU. So, that should be a NOP on NetBSD.

I'm not sure about that, PowerPC MMU stuff breaks my brain. IIRC we
only really care about the first one since that's where the kernel code
