Change the pmap to use 512-byte pages as user page table pages instead of
PAGE_SIZE pages (4k). An average small program uses ~6 4k pages (24k),
while the same program only uses ~20 512 byte pages (10k), so it will be
a small memory usage improvement. The large improvement will be the upcoming
ability to share page table pages between processes for shared libraries.
Remaining: should be able to give back ptp pages to the system.
