src/sys/arch/alpha/alpha [netbsd-2-0]: pmap.c
Pull up revision 1.211 (requested by thorpej in ticket #5528):
1. Disable the lazy allocation of lev1map in pmap_enter(), instead
it in pmap_create(), and freeing the lev1map in pmap_destroy().
means that pm_lev1map is consistent for the life of the pmap.
2. pmap_extract() now uses vtophys() for the kernel pmap. This avoids
having to lock the kernel pmap, since kernel PT pages are never
3. Because of (1), pmap_asn_alloc() no longer needs to operate on a
pmap; pm_lev1map will never change over the life of the pmap,
other access to the pmap is done in per-CPU fields or with atomic
4. Because of (3), pmap_activate() no longer needs to lock the pmap
to do its work, thus eliminating the deadlock with sched_lock
in PR port-alpha/25599. This is safe because we are guaranteed
the pmap is still alive, since by definition an LWP that uses
is about to run.
Thanks to Michael Hitch for the analysis, and Michael and Ragge for
