CVS commit: src/share/man/man9

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   ad
Date:           Mon Dec 29 12:43:47 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        src/share/man/man9: kmem_alloc.9

Log Message:
Add a bunch of new text, in particular:

        Use of KM_NOSLEEP is strongly discouraged as it can
        create transient, hard to debug failures that occur
        when the system is under memory pressure.

        In situations where it is not possible to sleep, for
        example because locks are held by the caller, the
        code path should be restructured to allow the allo-
        cation to be made in another place.
