CVS commit: src/sys/arch/i386/include

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   jym
Date:           Tue Sep 21 00:18:05 UTC 2010

Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/i386/include: types.h

Log Message:
Promote paddr_t to 64 bits for i386 userland (non PAE and PAE).

paddr_t has limited interest in userland, and should only be used by specific
code like kvm(3) (for VA => PA translations). To support non PAE and PAE
kernels simultaneously in kvm(3), promote paddr_t to 64 bits.

No objection on current-users@. See also:

Kernel remains untouched by this change. In-kernel 64 bits for paddr_t is for
a future commit (Yes, I do not forget about that :) )
