Great work!

How about making paddr_t always 64bit? That makes it much easier to deal
with in libkvm.

paddr_t being always 64bit wide also allows to switch PAE on and off at
runtime like Solaris does.

Pleaes fix the amd64 build error reported on current-users@.
The build error is related to rump.
