Uh. I was misinterpreting the ktrace output last night. It wasn't the munmap
call that was taking up lots of CPU time. It was the green stuff between the
calls ;) (The red stuff you see is my face.)
Now that I see the mmap() and munmap() calls being fast, WHY does the system
spend 70% of time in kernel, according to top or systat?
I will build an X server without the mmap/munmap memory allocator now and see
how it performs.
