CVS commit: src/sys/rump/librump/rumpkern

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   pooka
Date:           Thu Jun  3 10:56:20 UTC 2010

Modified Files:
        src/sys/rump/librump/rumpkern: locks_up.c memalloc.c rump.c
            rump_private.h vm.c

Log Message:
Implement a sort-of pagedaemon: adjust all memory allocators to go
through an in-rumpkernel hypermemory allocator which knows it should
kick the pagedaemon and block in case ``waitok'' memory allocation

This allows us to recover from some out-of-memory situations.
Realworld'istically speaking (as opposed to whatever "should be"
theory), these OOM situations will happen extremely rarely if ever
when our hypervisor is a regular process.  Speculatively, this
should be useful for other types of hosts.

issues remaining:
 * the hypervisor does not know how to reclaim kernel memory (and
   for the reason I stated above, I'm not sure if it makes sense
   to teach the current implementation about that)
 * vfs memory (buffers, vm object pages etc.) is not reclaimed
